I hadn't been to the Bio Park in a while and i was surprised at the activities for children such as a maze and other amenities. My grandson, 5 years, really had fun running around the place, seeing frogs, water fowl and muskrats,and the train exhibit. The flora and fauna is interesting for adults as well. At Christmas they put... More

The zoo is not real big and it was hot. Not a lot of shade but was worth seeing. We took the train to the Botanical Garden and Aquarium and it was a nice ride but the line to get on the train was VERY LONG and it only runs about every hour so you need to plan your visit... More

We walked the trails along the Rio Grande river and only went in the park itself briefly. Very enjoyable.

Great mix of education, trails, gardens, farm sites. Decide what you want to see first by checking list of offerings. Farmhouse and gardens showcase early lives, Japanese garden is gorgeous. Demos at sites are interesting and participatory. Conservatories, healing gardens, naturalized gardens. Train to ride, birding. Something for everyone. Very family friendly, convenient facilities.

My kids loves zoos, aquariums, and gardens so this was the ideal destination for us. We started at the zoo. We ended up buying the family membership as I knew we would visit more than one day and the membership reciprocated with several other zoos that we will visit within a year. The line was quite long at the entrance... More

We visited the botanical gardens at the park, as well as the aquarium. Both were very nice and we especially enjoyed the garden's greenhouses. This is a nice place to spend a couple hours.

You can hit the aquarium and biological park in one afternoon. The biological park has many beautiful gardens to visit and if you enjoy walking, you can easily spend two hours enjoying the scenery.

The zoo is among the best I've seen, with great exhibits and wide variety of animals. The aquarium was a delight for the four youngsters we had in tow, and they were excited at the divers we floated into the tank to feed the sharks. The children's botanical garden is just as much fun for the adults as for the... More

I haven't visited too many zoos in my life but decided to give this one a shot since I was staying at a hotel. Two days prior I visited the San Diego Zoo so I didn't know what to expect. The layout was easy to follow. Parking was great, but I got there just after they opened, so I was... More

Went to all three of the Parks - Botanical Gardens, Aquarium, and Zoo. Botanical Garden was the best. All the different plants and flowers were beautiful. Aquarium was small but ok. Displays were neat. The zoo was least favorite of the three, although the baby elephant was fun to watch. And the flamingos put on a little show.
