The San Antonio Botanical Garden’s acquisition of an adjacent 9-acre site has provided the opportunity to expand the breadth of the Garden and redefine the entry experience. Ten Eyck Landscape Architects led the design of a new entry sequence and a variety of themed gardens, drawing inspiration from the both the region and the Garden itself. Upholding a mission of accessibility, environmental stewardship, public outreach and education, new plazas and gardens are designed to complement existing gardens, showcase the eco-regions of Texas, and engage the site’s history as a former quarry and waterworks. Page complemented the enhanced environment with the development of wayfinding and donor signage that is generally quiet with selected exuberant flourishes that capture the color and life of this beautiful respite within a dynamic city.
