It is a lovely place to stroll around and see all the plants and trees they have to see. From time to time they have special exhibits. They also have a model train that runs through the park.

This Zoo is so family friendly and you can enjoy all day or just a couple hours. Large variety of animals and easy to walk around. There is good food available and a lovely large lawn to picnic on

Really pleasant botanical garden with a variety of desert habitats, a couple of glass houses and a nice Japanese garden. My only complaint is that too many plants were not labelled and when I go to a garden like this I want to learn the names of some of the plants I like.

This is a lovely garden, well laid out and very well maintained. I loved the specialty garden areas with complementary hardscape. The farm was fun and educational. I saw unexpected wildlife: a cottontail, roadrunner, blue heron and porcupine, among others. This is definitely a must see for anyone interested in gardens!

This is one of my favorite "getaways" in Albuquerque. The gardens are nicely designed, well maintained and there's always something different to see depending on the season. The Japanese garden area is very large and peaceful; a great place to be alone and enjoy nature. My husband and I like the BioPark facilities (Botanical Garden, Zoo and Aquarium) so much,... More

Lots of variety, very pretty and staff friendly. Visit the aquarium too plus the coffee shop. Loved the Japanese gardens, the farming features and beautiful flowers everywhere. Coffee shop has home grown food.

Had a great time. Wrapped up the biopark with the botanical garden. Was such a relief from the desert. Went in mid April pn a Saturday , great temps and weather. We also got in half off admissions to the Aquarium and Botanical Garden.

If you live in ABQ get the bio park membership--best deal in town. The zoo, botanic garden and aquarium are a great escape from your busy life. All are easy to access, not overwhelming in size but beautiful and worth a visit.

The Bio Park includes three attractions, zoo, aquarium and botanical gardens. The aquarium is a small attraction with very good exhibits. The zoo is average in comparison with comparable zoos in other cities although recently has added several new exhibits. The botanic gardens are excellent and worth the price of the combination ticket by themselves. Taken together the parks are... More
