The park has many beautiful areas including a large vine covered chapel just waiting for a wedding, desert habitat plants and tropicals but the special part of this park is the children's area.

Didn't have a chance to visit all of the areas of the Biological Park, but I can tell you the Botanical Garden is lovely. Despite not being a kid, I really liked the kid's area.

I have a yearly pass to the Biopark so obviously I love going there. There is so much to see throughout all four seasons. The polar bears at the zoo are always a great. It is a don't miss place for visitors.

It was a hot day in this Bio park which has three components, Gardens, Aquarium and Zoo. You can buy a combo ticket or a ticket for only one component. The gardens were a welcome relief from the heat. The aquarium was informative and cool on a hot day--I really liked the jelly fish exhibit--it was the first time I... More

Albuquerque Bio Park has a large number of unique animal viewing areas. It is not uncommon to see new babies at this park, which are always fun to watch. It is fun and a great learning opportunity.

This place was ok. I liked the aquarium and train ride from one side to another. There were many exhibits that were empty. I am half we went to say we did. The koala was my favorite.

Fun stop to see the sharks and sting rays but you couldn't move without bumping into someone else. Plan your trip for early in the day to avoid the crowds!

We had a great time looking at all the animals. There was such a good variety of animals and activities. The animals all seemed to be in good spirits and health.
