ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden, Albuquerque

4.5
#5 of 16 in Parks in Albuquerque
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. ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Albuquerque Edition.
