I was taken by the number of beautiful flowers that can grow in ABQ's desert climate. You'll see that and much more here. A really fun side trip --- trick is to buy a whole Bio Park pass, and go to the Zoo, the Aquarium...More

The ABQ Biopark Botanic garden is a really great garden for such a small place (ABQ). The plants are diverse and the gardens are inviting. Unfortunately the butterfly pavilion was being remodeled when we visited. The Biopark train is also fun!

I heard it advertised on a radio station offering free entry before 10:00am so I took advantage of the offer. The garden was reasonably expansive with a variety of plant life, and interesting heritage farm and bugatorium. The rose garden was good. There was also...More

If I was a millionaire I would build my house in the center of this place. This would be so pretty for a wedding or anniversary dinner. So so hot when not in the shade. So take an umbrella and pretend you're somewhere in Europe...More

There are several things to do there, so if you do them all, it can be 3 or more hours. There is the botanical garden, bug exposition, and the Aquarium. Do all or one or two, up to you.
