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.
