Trip Planner: USA / New Mexico / Albuquerque / ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden
Stroll through the Japanese garden, showcasing a waterfall leading into a pond with koi fish, at ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden. The site features an aquarium, rose garden, butterfly house, demonstration garden, medicinal plants, and a conservatory. The conservatory houses a wing designated for plants native to Mediterranean climates and one for plants native to North American deserts. Miniature trains run through a mock village at the Railroad Hill area, and the gigantic vegetable and insect structures make a statement in the Children's Fantasy Garden. If you visit in the spring or summer, the flowers and shrubbery explode in full bloom.

We wanted something to do on the day we arrived in Albuquerque and so decided to visit the Botanic Garden. There was plenty to see and the area is very pleasant to walk around.

Went on a Saturday to celebrate my mom's birthday. Ordered my tickets online, it was so easy. It was nice to be able to go right in and not have to wait in line. Main reason was to see the new Japanese Island. Very beautiful, so peaceful. Also visited the Aquarium, very quick and not very much to look at. Food and Drinks are very expensive. Highly recommend taking your own drinks and lunch. The botanical garden has a very large shaded grass area were you can sit down to have lunch. Staff is really nice and informative and able to assist in anyway. New areas in the Botanical Garden were you can have photo shoot, wedding ceremony, take maternity photos and etc.
I came here during the harvest festival, so there were lots to do - artisans, good food, and live music. I love nature and this place definitely made me feel peaceful. It’s absolutely beautiful. I walked the entire park, even some of the hidden paths. There’s so much to see – beautiful flowers, plants, waterfalls, koi fish, ducks, and even - dare I say it - bugs 😱 I’m not a fan of bugs, but was amazed at how beautiful some of them are (not the roaches 😅), and how well they blend into their environment. The universe is an amazing thing! Entry to the aquarium was included, which was great. It’s a bit small but I still enjoyed it. if you’re looking for a little slice of heaven, you’ll certainly find it here 🥰
I already mentioned it in my aquarium review but this place is great! You get to go to the aquarium and botanical garden and that gives you diverse ecology facts and tons of things to do withs friends, family or even dates. We spent about 4 hrs at the aquarium and botanical garden combined. Most at the garden while speed walking since we were on a time crunch. But its wonderful for tourists or local alike great deal and gorgeous plants and architecture. Has a really cool bugarium to teach all about bugs and a butterfly area but that was closed currently.
The review is for the Botanical Garden. At $5.50 per senior it is great. We love the Japanese Garden, the rose garden, and the enclosed Mediterranean garden. The rest is excellent. One comment - there is a part that merits more attention. As you go in to the Japanese garden main gate (past the part with a bell, past the gate, to the right) there is a small garden that seemed to be donated. It is NOT well maintained.
This is the best botanical gardens that I have ever been too. There is just so much to see and do. Everything so so well kept and maintained. We could only spend about 4 hours here, but I'm sure you could spend a whole day here without trying very hard. Awesome!
