This is just a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Haven't been here for over a year. We were amazed at the changes. The high desert rose garden and the Bugarium are great additions. We always love the Japanese Garden. If you haven't been here for a while go back. It is peaceful, beautiful and full of surprises. So... More

There were various gardens which were well organized and cared for. The plants were beautiful. I especially liked the butterfly conservatory. I got lots of great photos in there. You can bring a picnic and eat on the lawn if you want. It is a relaxing place to take a stroll and enjoy the beautiful views and plants.

It was our first time to a botanical garden and we enjoyed it. The place is very well kept, educational, and is relaxing. We saw many exhibits and loved all the different types of plants and trees.

Both of the parks are average but I really did enjoy the botanical garden. They have lots of area to explore. I especially liked the butterfly pavilion, japanese garden, and farm area. They had these... More

Walk through the botanical garden to encounter conservatories, desert landscapes, a wonderful Japanese garden, a farm heritage location, a rose garden, water features... you name it, they just about have it. Lots of wildlife, also - we even saw a couple of porcupines up in an oak tree munching on acorns! It's quite a walk to see everything, but the... More

Had bundled all three options, the garden, the zoo and the aquarium. This is right beside the aquarium and i love the lay out of the place. When in abq, I would recommend that you see this place, it was simple but nice

This park is open all year around and is very diversified in its offerings. Morocco rose garden, Japanese garden, summer concerts in a relaxed atmosphere. You can also visit an old fashioned farm, observe different farm animals, and the aquarium . Hours of fun for a reasonable admittance fee.
