The ABQ Biopark Botanic Garden is a botanical garden located at 2601 Central Avenue NW in Albuquerque, New Mexico, beside the Rio Grande. The garden showcases plants of the Southwest and other arid climates, and includes a conservatory, formal themed gardens, and a demonstration garden. One wing of the glass conservatory houses plants native to the Mediterranean climates zones of Spain, Portugal, Turkey, South Africa, Australia, Chile and California. A second wing features xeric plants from North American deserts. Paths behind the conservatory showcase New Mexico Habitats, including desert, grasslands, lava flows and sandhills. Medicinal plants are highlighted in El Jardin de la Curandera. Railroad Hill includes miniature trains and villages, and Children's Fantasy Garden is a "garden" of gigantic vegetables and insects . From mid-May through September, the PNM Butterfly Pavilion showcases hundreds of North American butterflies. The Heritage Farm represents farm life along the Rio Grande in the 1920s and 1930s, and Colores offers delights in every season with blossoms, seed pods and interesting foliage. Opened in the fall of 2007, Sasebo Japanese Garden features a 16-foot waterfall that tumbles into a large pond, surrounded by winding paths.

GREAT stop!!! The gardens here were so much better than we expected! The walking paths through it were very well done. There were paved, gravel, and dirt trails with plants from different areas and climates. Our favorite sections were the Japanese Garden and the Fantasy Garden. The Japanese Garden was SO beautiful!!! And the Fantasy Garden was just neat and the kids had a blast going through it! Oh and the train! They had a large G-Scale train near the Fantasy Garden that was really neat! We planned an hour and a half here and ended up taking about two and a half instead, and that was with jogging through part of it because a storm was coming in! Totally worth it!

Wonderful botanical space in Albuquerque! You can explore many wonderful gardens both indoor and outdoor. The children’s garden was very well created and enjoyable for adults as well. It was ~$15 a person, which was really great. Great spot for couples or families, very nice facilities and friendly staff
