  • They say see animals in their natural environment. There's nothing natural about small cages. It was very disturbing to see how small the enclosures were. The animals looked distressed. I appreciate t...  more »
  • Loved this place. Staff was friendly and animals were amazing. Especially LOVED the affectionate little mule deer who came up and didn't want us to stop petting her. Definitely a hidden gem!  more »

  • Honestly, you need to visit here. I took my SO here for a date and we had the entire park to ourselves. The animals were all present and we got to interact / see every one of them. YOU CAN PET THE DEER! OMG, if seeing mountain lions up close wasn't enough, YOU... CAN... PET... THE... DEER. This place just won my heart since I see deer all the time and want to pet them, but could never get close enough. Minor Bucket List Item - success!
  • Great animal sanctuary that depends on local support to help native wildlife that can't be released back into the wild for a variety of reasons. Beautiful surroundings, friendly staff and volunteers, and a peaceful place to visit. Check it out and help support their efforts.
  • I haven't been inside the nature park, however, I had the pleasure of visiting their disc golf course a few times. There is a bit of overgrowth at some of the holes and rarely were there maps, but it's well spaced and I didn't lose discs in brush like with most of the parks in Albuquerque. A few tricky long shots, overall a good spot.
  • Absolutely loved the wildlife park. The coyotes are super sweet and will come up to the humans, you can pet a very sweet mule deer, and the male elk is interacts with the people as well, I fed him some hay. One of the baby bobcats imprinted on humans and goes right up to you. All the animals are beautiful and truly an educational experience.
  • This little zoo was the perfect place to take our grandkids, 5 & 6, for the afternoon. Could see all the animals up close and had time to linger.
