  • This zoo is a wonderful place for a visit! It is small enough that you could probably make it through in about a two hours if you needed to, but could definitely spend several hours of you wanted. Price for going to the zoo is very reasonable. The food price inside is very expensive. There is a good variety of animals, and I have seen a lot of animal movements unlike other zoos where the animals just nap all the time. The cat walk is my favorite part. My son loves the reptile building. Some of the animals are put away during the winter but the zoo is still open and delightfully quiet compared to Saturdays in the summer. I highly recommend this for a stop if you are from out of town. If you live in town, get a membership cause this is a great place to go multiple times.
  • I have been to Zoos all over the country and I love the Albuquerque Bio Park. There is a lot to do here and the animals have lots of space. It will take a full day to walk through and see everything. They are always doing some updates and improving the habitats. They have one of the most amazing and largest collections of reptiles. This bio park also has a large plant collection. There is a lot of educational resources as well. You will love this zoo.
