The ABQ BioPark Zoo is located next to the Rio Grande in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded in 1927, the 64-acre facility offers guests close encounters with exotic and native animals. The other BioPark facilities include the Aquarium, Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach.
I've been to a lot of zoos and this one noticeably is home to the cutest animals--most of all the tas devils, prairie dogs (v. small and fluffy), and koala that latches onto a teddy bear in its sleep.
Zoo boo isn't quite great. You wait in line at booths for 5 minutes just for one piece of candy. Parking is impossible to find, and the zoo is crowded. But, good exercise.
Great layout, lots to see and do. Kept my little kids ingested all day.
When they have their concerts here it is an awesome time to hit the zoo then catch some live tunes on a summer evening!
Baby Hippo is adorable! Lots of construction and continued to hit dead ends, but we had a lovely time. We were able to dick in and out of indoor exhibits between rain storms.
Saw the baby hippo born this morning!
Great concerts and family events.
Amazing selection of animals! Great price for entry. Nice pavilion and lawn for picnics. Parking lot not so great and streets leading to Zoo are confusing. Worth a stop while in Albuquerque!
Nice zoo. I was surprised to see polar bears!
$20 ticket gets you entry into this awesome zoo! ($15 if you are a NM resident!) check out the polar bear feeding around 2:00 it's awesome to see them dive into the water for food!
Great polar bear exhibit.
Getting a Bio Park membership is an amazing deal. Nothing like unlimited zoo (and aquarium/garden) access!
Really cool zoo.
Flamingos the first attraction as you walk in the gates, beautiful!
Beautiful Zoo It takes more time then their literature recommends to see everything
Remember to bring water and a hat because it's hot out!
Don't forget to bring quarters to buy food so the kids (big & small) can feed the ducks and fish. Lots of fun!
Lots of fun today.
Flamingos stink. Literally.
Photobooth by front entrance.
The polar bears are fun to watch
See the polar bears!
A safe place to fart.
Twinkle light parking lot ... Free park and ride. Get here early. It's insane.
This is a nice place 2 go 2 and see the monkeys in Albuquerque.
The reptile exhibit is closed, boo!
A great way to spend Mothers Day!
One of my favorite zoos so far and I've been to over 20! Very nice. Got amazing giraffe pictures
Great zoo, especially for the price. Even though some animals were off exhibit or docile, it was worth the price.
Zoo Boo today from 11am to 4pm. Come out and help Raise Money to feed the animals and get your picture taken with a Star Wars character or other Super hero character...
Great zoo and a fantastic open grass area to let the kids run wild. Great exhibits too. Go in the Morning to miss the crowds and heat
Don't miss the seals and sea lions. Great display and it's a nice shady spot to get out of the heat.
Run in a zig-zag pattern if the crocodiles escape!
Zoo music gets crazy. Get here early for good parking or you'll have a walk.
Go early: parking lot was pretty full at 11:30am, but crazy packed at 1:00pm, incl the neighborhood streets.
Go to the zoo when the weather is nicer
