This is a beautiful place and very well manicured garden areas. Highly recommend! A must see if you're in the area for more than a day or two!

very nice and informative for the area, not something you want to do more than once a year maybe. But a good place to spend the day

BioPark is a great destination for families with children. It's not so big that it is overwhelming and the walk around the large pond is very enjoyable. A small train circles the park setting every quarter hour. The insect pavilion while not too big, has an interesting display of some very creepy crawlers.

I visit Albuquerque 2-4 times a year. The Bio Park and Zoo are always nice in any season. Mid November 2015 was perfect for a Fall/Winter visit. My family enjoyed playing in the autumn leaves and walking through the Bio Park and the Zoo: Very nice on a late Autumn day. Lots of nice animals and birds, etc. The new... More

It had rain during the night, and the next day was overcast but the Botanic Gardens were beautiful and beyond what I had expected. The park wasn't overly crowed and so I had a wondering time just wandering at a slow pace so that I could enjoy the ground and the different areas of the gardens. The child's bug garden... More

Had read that the Botanic Garden is a superlative park to visit prior to our visit to Albuquerque. But we discovered that the timing of our visit coincided with the spectacular holiday light exhibit at the garden which runs in the evening. Since our visit to ABQ could only be 1 day, we decided to visit the garden during the... More

This is not a typical or especially educational botanic garden, but it is very nicely done and we had a terrific time wandering. There is a "farm" with some animals, a couple of indoor/warm temp displays, and a decent Japanese garden (which felt more Chinese, to tell the truth). An excellent way to pass a few hours in Albuquerque. We... More

The Bio park encompasses numerous gardens and a small aquarium . It is a gem in the center of town . For a single price , you can walk to the Japanese Gardens , the Farm , Rose garden and enclosed Biospheres . There is a children's maze and play area including a giant pumpkin and a log slide .I...
