My cousin took me here, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! There were so many different areas to visit that all contained different themes. The Japanese garden area was beautiful in its simplicity, the Amphibian area was interesting as well. We spent all day there, and could've gone back again but our time did not allow. A must see if you're... More

It was worth the trip to see the park and hear the history. Being in the desert and seeing its beauty is wonderful

what a relaxing afternoon! A stroll thru the park on a sunny winter afternoon should be a must see in ABQ!

Very nice and large garden. They have concerts on the summer, the light show in the winter and great flowers on spring and fall. Towards the back there is a nice japanese garden. I think the kids section at the beggining is a lot of fun even for adults. I would recommend going here and also stopping by the aquarium.

If you happen to be in the Duke City between T'giving and Xmas, think about attending this event ($12/adult in 2015-no sr discts). It is really pretty and if you have kiddos in your party, they will love it. My only negative comment is really a suggestion: I hope the sponsors will consider a special evening or hours set aside...

I visit Albuquerque 2-4 times a year. The Bio Park is always nice in any season. Last week was perfect for a Fall/Winter visit. My family enjoyed playing in the autumn leaves and walking through all of the gardens while viewing the newly installed Christmas light exhibit = best of everything! The pink flowering plants in the arboretum are absolutely... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. There were a dozen different exhibit areas, very imaginative and well organized. The butterfly Pavilion in season is quite an experience, and the docents very helpful and friendly. The walled gardens were impressive, especially the Ceremonial Garden. The train display was not working the day I visited, I would have liked to... More
