The Albuquerque Biopark is a great place to enjoy nature and an especially great place to take small children. This park would be right at home in a city much bigger than Albuquerque. The aquarium, though small, is very nicely laid out and has a wonderful selection of marine and sealife. The Biopark has a terrific Children's Area, an impressively... More

This is a place to relax and enjoy yourself. Beautiful place. And, many activities for families. Definite must if you are a tourist, and if you live in the Q, get a membership.

We always visit the BioPark. We can literally spend three days here. Seeing it lit up at night with all the Christmas lights was just magical!

I am now quite impressed with the diversity that now exists at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens. It seems that the city was focusing more on the zoo, lakes, and aquarium for the longest time. Not anymore...my favorite sections of the park are the ponds, rose gardens, Japanese garden, and the farm houses with orchards.

We've been members of the Abq Bio Park for a couple years now. We take visiting family and friends here in the cool mornings of summer, the Parade of Lights during Christmas and the summer concerts are always a great way to spend an evening. Oh, and the gardens are amazing too!
