Beautiful Zoo, went Easter weekend and they had a special of half-off ticket prices so it only cost about $22 for 3 adults and one child. Zoo was clean and not too crowded. Tasmanian Devils and the Lions were nowhere to be seen so we were a little disappointing they were hiding. Did the train ride (U have to pay... More

My daughter and I decided to take a day trip to Albuquerque to the zoo and aquarium. They are both off the beaten path but were easily located via Google maps. The zoo was much larger than we expected and we really enjoyed the exhibits. The Aquarium is small but it was a good way to spend anout 1 1/2... More

Flora and fauna are fabulous to see and explore; great interpretive and educational facility and you can also eat lunch or dinner while watching fish float by.

Has nice gardens and greenhouse - for a dessert. Is nice to that it is combined with the Zoo. Green houses do have a limited orchid exhibit, but at least they have some.

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
