Be advise the zoo is under going renovation. Many exhibits closed and those open may have wrong signage. Bring your own food as main cafe either doesn't have listed items or are stale. You may want to visit at another time

Besides the gardens which were very nice and much cooler with all the trees the area has a small but very good aquarium. The prices were great for seniors and it is totally kid friendly. I would recommend this for a stop while in Albuquerque.

A great place to take kids... lots of little fun activities along the way as you walk through the park. Not a fan of caged critters, but the animals seemed very well-cared-for and all staff members were helpful and friendly, so that was nice.

We did the aquarium and garden this time. My previous time we did the aquarium only. I loved it, and will probably do it again. I have family near here which we visit every year or two.

My sister and I planned to spend a few hours here and ended up spending the entire day, and we still didn't see everything. The zoo is massive and the animal exhibits are nicely done. The park was all but empty (in the middle of the summer) so we had a great time exploring all of the different sections of... More

I felt bad about this area, it looks like they need some money to get it fixed up. Some of the area was messes and run down and I couldn't help feeling sorry for the animals. If your going to have animals they must be kept in the best environment , to me this wasn't it. The train was great... More

It was hot when we were there and so that detracted a bit from the visit for us but there were some shady spots to get to. I am sure it is even more lovely in the spring but all in all a neat stop with a varied amount of attractions (Butterfly pavilion, old New Mexico farm house and farm,... More

We have visited the whole bio-park as well a brief trip through the botanical garden and aquarium. The aquarium can be done very quickly. The garden has many themed areas and is a nice place to let the kids run around. If you are there during the holidays, the evening light walk is a must. The tram that runs back... More
