This is a "must visit" destination for locals and out-of-towners as well. The myriad of land and sea offerings will amaze and entertain you, and the docents are friendly and love to offer their insightful expertise about the entire operation. We visit this venue several times per year and encourage you to do the same, you'll be glad you did.... More

beautiful flowers but could do with an upgrade. When I visited there are not tours with information you are pretty much on your own.

The layout of the botanic garden is really clever, flowing from one theme to another with the one dominant feature - tranquility. The park has even considered the kids, with things to keep them amused and educated along the way, in particular the butterfly enclosure. We spent a relaxing hour admiring the diversity of nature, and being reminded that nature... More

I had never been to the botanic gardens. We went there for the African violet show and sale. I was glad to get to see the gardens also. Beautiful! I would be the entrance fee and go in and set for a spell just for the sounds and sights.The butterfly space was fantastic!

We went to the large bio park. There was a lot of attention to variety and beauty, plus fun toys for kids. Admission also covers the Aquarium which is also good. The snack bar was closed when were there.

The botanic gardens house some of the most beautiful plants and flowers in New Mexico. This is a fantastic venue for all ages. Once you are there, you will love it. But beware, you must first drive through a not so great neighborhood to get there. I really hope the city does something about this.

Pros: Huge expanse of gardens. The admission for the gardens is included with the aquarium (or vice versa). The Japanese Gardens were quite nice. The children's garden neat the front was quite fun, walking among giant bugs, etc. The butterfly house featured many butterflies and the nearby lake provided a very scenic view of the greenhouses. Cons: Some of the... More

Wonderful place to visit. Can't wait my next trip to the new Dragonfly House (Oct 15). Butterfly house was better than most I have visited. Flowers and wildlife activity around the big pond was interesting.
