Botanical Gardens

Part of the ABQ BioPark in Albuquerque and containing 36 acres of gardens and conservatories, the Albuquerque Botanic Garden is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.
There are over 1 and 1/2 miles of paths which include the Butterfly Pavilion, Sasebo Japanese Garden,
Rio Grande Heritage Farm and other lovely sights.
During the summer the garden is open until 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays and for the $7 admission you can visit both the Botanic Garden and the Aquarium.  Also in summer on Thursday evenings, you can attend Summer Nights musical concerts. In the fall there is a Harvest Festival and the Holiday season brings the River of Lights (please check ticket prices).  Food and gifts are available in the garden.
The Botanic Garden and Aquarium is located at 2601 Central Av. N.W.
