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

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.

Better than San Diego, but still not the National Zoo. Good primate and African exhibits. Connects with Botanical Garden via a train- also good. There is an aquarium co-located with the Botanical Garden. We like all three. Good for kids. Annual pass is an excellent deal and gets you in early to special events like Zoo Boo, etc.

We were attending a late afternoon wedding there so went early in the morning, and was disappointed. Gardens are well maintained. The Japanese-style garden area iis a must to see. . Be prepared for a lot of walking, but we had a nice time. Also Great place for a wedding.

Mind you we've been to Chattanooga, Atlanta and Monterrey so our past experience tainted this one. Was OK but the plants, flowers and other sights were quite extensive in the biological part. A must see if you are in the area. I don't really get into it but my wife said it was the best she's been to anywhere.

After a day of visiting the zoo and aquarium - the biological gardens was a treat. Turn the kids loose to run amok in the mazes, tunnels and other garden features. If you can arrange it, visit it during the butterfly season. Beautiful stuff and especially at night when things are cool. Always a joy to visit this place.
