“conserve, educate, recreation”
The Albuquerque Biological Park consists of the Rio Grande Zoo, Albuquerque Aquarium, Rio Grande Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach. The BioPark’s objective is to provide the public with exciting recreational opportunities and to foster environmental awareness, education and stewardship. The Albuquerque Biological Park operates as a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs of the City of Albuquerque under policy direction set by the Mayor, City Council, the Director of the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Albuquerque Biological Park Advisory Board municipal government.
Useful information not in the description: the zoo and aquarium aren't in the same area, and it costs more to go to both, thought there's a combo ticket price. This includes a pass for a train that goes back and forth, but it doesn't run on Mondays (which is when we were there), and so they wouldn't sell us the aquarium/zoo combo price even though we could just drive. So confusing. We ended up just seeing the zoo, which was nice enough. But I was disappointed to see that they kept a polar bear in New Mexico...the poor thing just sat there panting all day.
We went to the aquarium at the park. it was small but nice. $12.50 for adults, but it was worth it because my 25 month old LOVED it.
