I went with friends to see the Japanese garden, and even with the fall leaves dropped, the colors were gorgeous. There is a lot of attention to a variety of colors of firs and pines, placement of uneven numbers in the plantings and especially all the red barks and branches, and asymmetrical balancing of rocks and sculptures. This was very... More

ABQ has a great zoo and biopark. We especially enjoy the River of Lights during the Christmas holidays.

I go here at least monthly -- sometimes weekly -- with my daughter. One of our favorite spots in Albuquerque. The aquarium is small and sweet. You can run through it quickly or take your time. The botanical gardens, on the other hand (which is right next to the aquarium, and admission allows entry to both), is huge and meandering.... More

We stopped in ABQ one night and got a pass for the Aquarium and the Biological Park. One ticket was 12.50!!! It is truly worth it. Although we went in November, there was still so much beauty to be admired and the Bugnasium (a new attraction) was so awesome! The lady who was working on 11/6/2015 around 4pm in there... More

I'm not sure if this area would be suitable for children unless there was an activity going on - as they do only have one place for kids (a Fantasy Garden). My favorite spot was the Japanese Garden.

This is a very nice site incorporating gardens on one side and an aquarium on the other. We went into the garden first, though there would seem to be no problem in visiting each site in the opposite order. While there, we were told that the ABQ Bio Park Gardens are ranked #5 in the U.S. We can see why.... More

I wandered here while visiting other places and enjoyed my time walking around the park. The multitude of plants, trees, flowers...were very beautiful, and it was a relaxing place to be. I could easily see coming here often and wandering about, enjoying the views and just relaxing.

Thank Jason K
