The zoo, botanical garden and aquarium have always been some of my favorite places to visit in Abq. While the Zoo can become crowded with tons of kids the Botanical Garden offers a little more serenity. Best time to visit is in the Spring after the flowers start blooming.

Took the family to visit the fish. We have been here numerous times and have always had a wonderful time. My grandson is not yet two, but tried to tell me everything that we were looking at. He has been here more times than I have. We love the large tanks where we can just sit and watch everything swimming... More

The BIO PARK as Albuquerque residents call it, is a Beautiful garden that is a must see by all. It features an abundance of beautiful flowers and Bush creations of animals, along with a Butterfly Dome with big butterflies dancing around you. During the Christmas Holidays the park is lit up in Holiday lights. This is a very Family oriented... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this park was. Right next to the aquarium and the zoo and makes a great outing for families. They had a very cute toy train track with trains running and cute little towns etc. set up along the route.

I went twice in December for the river of lights. I had not gone in years. It was very nice and they had a lot more lights then I remember. I really enjoyed being able to get an adult beverage as i was there celebrating my birthday.

It was obvious this was not the time of the year to go here. There was no plant life. The best thing was the g scale train set up.

Albuquerque's Biopark makes for an interesting and beautiful day out. You can get the most out of it if you go on a nice day, weather-wise. You can enjoy the Aquarium and indoor exhibits in the hottest part of the day and the botanical gardens in the evening. If you are in ABQ for the winter, be sure to visit... More

Did not go to the zoo. It is winter so we could only view the plants in the indoor conservatory. There are not a ton of plants I there but it was still nice and we were not charged extra to see it. The aquarium was good. The fish and sharks all look very healthy. There is a sea turtle... More
