Unwinding in the San Antonio Botanical Garden is a pleasure that offers an endless supply of flora for your enjoyment. But the 38-acre facility also entwines nature with fine arts. Each spring, the Botanical Garden partners with the Magik Theatre to host Shakespeare in the Park, which has presented the Bard's masterworks in the great outdoors since 2005. While spring is momentary, Art in the Garden mixes contemporary sculpture with Mother Nature all year long. The 2015 installment of the collaboration with Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum brings Pittsburg-based interdisciplinary artist Kim Beck to the green space off Funston Place. But if fine arts don't captivate you, the peaceful pond, tree-lined Texas Native Trail and exhibit rooms of the Lucile Halsell Conservatory surely will. 555 Funston Pl., (210) 207-3250, www.sabot.org
