  Biopark Entrance
by AlbuqRay

Near the Old Town area, Albuquerque has a small but very nice biopark. It includes the Rio Grande Botanic Garden and The Albuquerque Aquarium. The two glass-enclosed conservatories in the biopark have desert and Mediterreanan plants. There is also a venue for concerts and a seasonal butterfly conservatory. Another innovative attraction is the Children's Garden, where all the vegetables and animals are your size. You may even walk underground too. Soon the biopark will be connected to the zoo by a small train.

The biopark is open every day of the week, 9am - 5pm (June through August: 9am - 6pm, Saturday and Sunday). It is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Days. Admission is $7 for adults and includes admission to Aquarium. For $12 you may also include Zoo admission. Children 3-12 and Seniors 65+ are $3 or $5 to include Zoo admission. On Thursdays in the summertime (7:00-9:00 PM), there are free concerts included in the admission.

Directions: West of the Old Town area on Central Avenue (Old Route 66) on the east side of the Rio Grande River
