  • In a desert setting it was nice to find an area to walk that was green and lush. There is a path all around and it connects to the Rio Grande Trail. Lots of shade in the morning or evening.

  • A friend and I had the great pleasure of doing a backstage penguin tour with Elijah yesterday. Those little critters are so cute and interesting. Elijah is amazing in his knowledge and enthusiasm and we had a fantastic time. Kudos to Biopark staff for their commitment. We've already booked another tour!
  • I love where this zoo is headed. Currently, a number of their exhibits are outdated, but they obviously know that, and are building towards an updated and exciting facility. Their elephant, Asia, and Australia areas are under construction, and looking to become awesome additions.
