Best value in Albuquerque

Best value in Albuquerque. Lovely gardens and excellent place to stroll and relax to beat the heat. Well thought out and they have used the grounds to their best advantage.

I went here primarily to visit the Japanese Garden, which is an wonderful section of the overall garden. The Japanese section is an authentic, traditional Japanese garden, with interesting sight-lines that change with every step you take. We spent about 2 hours in the entire garden, with most sections also having interesting plants and/or sculptures. There is also a nice... More

Very nice area seems quite large but after the zoo and the aquarium too tired to walk the whole garden, but the butterfly pavilion is a MUST SEE! (SEASONAL)

We bought the combo tickets for the botanical Gardens, the Aquarium, and the Zoo. The Butterfly Pavilion was our favorite. We spent so much time in the gardens and aquarium that by the time we took the train to the zoo, we were too tired to look at those exhibits. Well worth the money; wish the combo tickets covered two... More

Most botanic(al) gardens in the USA are wonderful cultural edifices with attached museums. The problem is that the donations go to satisfying the tastes of the upper class. This complex is much more scaled to family wonder and awe with a beautiful aquarium, fantasy garden that scales humans to the size of dragon flies, a wonderful series of outdoor trains... More

My husband and I got married here in August, and the staff went out of their way to make it a perfect day. The servers were fantastic, and so was Renee! I love this place, and definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get married. When it came to the end of the night, I told the wait staff to... More

Great botanical garden with multiple varieties of plants and exhibitions. Great for kids to experience a real farm and even a bug exhibit. Aquarium was loaded with volunteers eager to "immerse" kids with all kinds of fish and aquatic info.

After visiting the aquarium we went over to the BioPark Botanical Garden. This place was really cool. Seemed like every corner we turned something new was there. A ton of super petty flowers. I can never grow flowers so I always enjoy looking at them. The kids section was very cool as well. The kids with us are 14, 11... More

Albuquerque's Bio Park is a surprising oasis in the middle of downtown. Located on the edge of the bosque, the part capitalizes on it's location and incorporates the natural riparian forest as part of its gardens. The result is a truly surprising experience, one block off Central, also known as Route 66. The gardens are arranged by themes, my personal... More
