|the zoo is the block of green to the right, not the A marker|
The alternative plan we agreed upon was the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. It was in close proximity to the zoo and we were correct in assuming it would be less crowded. Overall, the gardens weren't as large as I remembered, Ryno was quick to point out I was smaller when I was five. I would say they only had a handful of true gardens and the other areas represented the different regions of Texas and the landscapes in each. I think our favorite part was probably the shrubs that were blooming with very yellow pods.
