Nothing special, but worth a short visit. Hopefully it will steadily get larger, with more species. There are other things to do in the area, so go for it---adds interest to your day.

Nestled in the Rio Grande Bosque is the Albuquerque Biopark. It's a large spacious grounds with different types of gardens and ponds. Included are a cactus garden (indoors) a Japanese garden with coy pond, a butterfly pavillion (seasonal) and a kid's garden with all sorts of neat sculptures. It's a nice respite in a town that generally lacks shade and... More

Had a nice and relaxing day wandering these gardens. They are very well kept up and offered a nice escape from the city (while still being in the city).

Nice place for kids to run around. Wish it hadn't been so hot. The women's bathroom had a horrible smell. They need a good exhaust fan. Reminded me a bathroom in a third world country.

This was a lovely garden for a desert area. Unfortunately, there were very few identifying signs and not much local plant life.

The garden is fantastic! It has a Japanese garden, a desert rose garden and a Spanish garden just to name a few. There is also plenty for the kids with a small heritage farm with some animals, a butterfly house, a children's fantasy garden and a miniature model train that showcases Thomas and Percy and some larger locomotives. The entry... More

This attraction is connected to the ABG Aquarium and is a worthwhile experience. There is a butterfly exhibit that all will love and the life size trip through the fantasy forest is not to be missed - Thank You Rotary Club!

I went to the Albuquerque BioPark Botanic Garden during the end of year holiday light show, and was totally blown away by the lights and shapes. A lot of creativity displayed, transforming the botanic garden into a magical place during December evenings.
