On the last day of our visit to NM, this was a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. There are many spots to sit quietly and enjoys the plantings. Exciting to see a working farm which is used for teaching. The butterfly house was especially nice as was the herb garden. Aquarium is small and was way too noisy to enjoy;... More

Spent the day here. Walked the garden and the kids loved looking and playing with the trains, watching the ducks, and going into the butterfly den. Beautiful plant and animals to enjoy and spend a day.

Great day for friends or with your family. Lots of great stuff for kids. Live the combined price and train that takes you back and forth from aquarium to zoo. Elephant exhibit is a highlight along with the polar bears. Can also go to the beach with own good. Lots of live shows during the day. Only a few places... More

We visited the zoo about a week ago with the kids, ages 8 & 11. I don't know what their secret is, but all the big cats were out and awake. Amazing! Overall the zoo is very clean and well laid out. If you have been to any of the bigger aquariums [Boston, Mystic, Baltimore], you can skip this one... More

I don't know when I have been more relaxed and held captive at the same time. The park is perfectly done up and established beautifully. I love that they added the dragon fly and the butterfly garden. My two fave things! put on your walking shoes, relax and take it all in! It was the perfect place for our daughters... More

We spent a beautiful morning walking through the biological park. It is a good place to spend looking at wonderful natural beauty. I do recommend going early in the morning during the summer as it can get quite hot in the afternoon.

I'm so glad our local friends recommended the botanical gardens. We spent a few hours and saw all the different sections. There is a lot of diversity and the gardens are so well maintained. We loved the Japanese Garden and Butterfly Pavilion the most. You can take your own picnic lunch and there's a lovely grassy area with plenty of... More

We purchased the combo ticket for $20 adult admission (includes admission to the aquarium, botanic garden, and the zoo, along with a train ride to take you to the zoo) and found it to be a good value. The aquarium took about an hour to walk through, then we took the train over to the zoo. I actually like that... More

Lovely to stroll but go early in morning to avoid heat of the day. Very inexpensive. Seniors only $5.50
