This was a fun place to spend an entire day. The aquarium is small but nice. The botanical garden is awesome with such a variety of trees & flowers. The Butterfly House was especially nice. Taking the train to the zoo makes a nice break from so much walking + you get to see Tingley Beach. I wish I'd gone... More

Was in the area for the annual Balloon Fiesta and stopped by to fill in some extra time. Only had enough time to visit the zoo portion of the park, but was not disappointed.

Ive seen a few aquariums in Asia, Dubai and Australia and the one in Albuquerque is also good. Though not that big but it got me interested and it was nice. The botanic gardens are just awesome.

See the Garden Guage Railroad that runs among the plants. The kids, of all ages, will love this. Lots of trains and cars are run daily by volunteers of the local Railroad club.

I am not normally a zoo-lover but the Albuquerque Biopark and Zoo were great linked attractions and we spent over 6 hours on our visit. I would say this is a must-visit. The two parks are linked by a train as they are a couple of miles apart.
