“Love this Place”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

For a smallish town, Albuquerque has a great Biopark system, of which the Botanic Gardens is part. Its easy to navigate, usually something new and the employees and volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly. The Rose Chapel is amazing and would be lovely for a wedding. The newly finished Japanese garden is amazing. Saw it during construction and still can't believe what all they did. Not to miss as well is the Butterfly pavilion and the Heritage Farm. Interesting and different that a lot of other Botanic Gardens in the country.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Every time I visit I ask myself why don't I go here more often. It is charming, diverse and peaceful. The relatively new Japanese Garden is outstanding. Also, there is very interesting tile work.

“Nice gardens”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Liked the moorish garden, but thought it could have used more features. The gardens are more of a park and quite spread out. There is a train that runs through but you can't get on and off it during the ride.

“Great place to be during the hoildays”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This place is great during the XMAS holidays. Other than that differently the place to be during a date. Couples will have a great time walking around even in the butterfly building. If solo it'll take about 20 mins to go through.
