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.
