This is a great place for people of all ages, with different elements to enjoy in each season and a variety of "garden" areas. This was the first time I had been in April and the display of tulips was exceptional. There is a large lawn and grass area with a lake, Children's fantasy garden with a large dragon blowing...

This was a first visit for us and we were expecting a rather small facility. What a wonderful surprise to find the large gardens and vintage farm. The spring flowers were in bloom and gorgeous. The Cottonwood Farm is from the 1920's - 1930's and has the home, some animals (sheep, goat, steer, turkey, chickens) in vintage corrals, and a... More

Gives the visitor an excellent feel for the plants of the southwest and has a Heritage Farm that is a nice place to visit. Mostly just a relaxing and beautiful place to see.

I enjoyed all of the different flora and fauna (though it would be nice if the plants were better labeled). They also have a Bug DIsplay and Butterfly LIving Display (in season). Very relaxing, interesting and in the same complex as the Aquarium, so you can go to both. It's near Old Town Albuquerque, where you can have lunch or... More

My friend and I did a guided tour of the Japanese Garden which was very informative. Unfortunately, our docent had a very soft voice and we had to strain to hear what she was saying. The grounds of the BioPark are very peaceful and it's a great place to just quiet your soul and connect with nature. There are a... More

Amazing place. Loved the miniature train sets and beautiful gardens. Worth visiting and very relaxing. The bugarium was interesting. Not a bug lover but it is a must see when there.

A great place to decompress, enjoy the lovely flowers, trees and water features. Plenty of room for the kids to run and explore. The model train village is extensive and well done complete with bridges, various trains (circus, steam, dinosaur etc) which are fun for all ages to watch. The bugatorium was informative and deliciously creepy. All in all a... More

A surprise visit with extra time in our day was well worth the $12. we spent to go to the Gardens. It is spring and things were just starting to bloom, but it was still worth it. We want to come back again to experience it in another stage. They had fun miniature trains running and that was fun as... More

Visited the last week of March. Was hoping to see more blooms on plants native to the area but guess it was the wrong time of year. the walk was nice and was impress with the Garden Train layout but the train(s) were not running the day we were there, a Monday.
