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.

Really lovely, well kept gardens! Highly recommend checking out all the different gardens. Also a great spot to picnic, so plan ahead to bring your lunch in. Admission includes the botanical garden and the aquarium, but they have separate but close entrances. Really recommend the Japanese garden. A great date spot, or for a solo stroll! Lots of birds and wildlife to look out for, including a porcupine. Great visit!
Put your walking shoes on and get ready to spend some time here! This place is deceptively massive. Every corner I turned revealed multiple new paths to take. The Japanese garden is beautifully designed and stepping into it feels like being transported to another world. The historic farm isn't just authentic and well built but is 100% functional! It's amazing to see so much of nature preserved. This place is going to keep me coming back to Albuquerque for many years to come. While you're here, make time for the aquarium as well; it's a breathtaking experience of its own.
