Prepare to Be Amazed…The BioPark

The Albuquerque BioPark.

A Trifecta of Gardens, Aquarium and Zoo with a Train that Connects All 3.

An Annual Membership is Cost-Effective and Allows Residents to Stop By Any Time.

For Visitors, The BioPark Is a Special Place to Visit to Be Amazed.

On a Still Hot and Now Humid Afternoon, the Ladies Ventured Out to the BioPark Gardens.

Camera-Ready to Capture the Magic.

But Our One Mistake.  Leaving without Sunscreen.

A Huge Uh-Oh in these Parts.

A Chapstick-Sized Tube of Sunscreen in the Gift Shoppe is $6.  Criminal.

We Opted for Silk Japanese Parasols Instead.  $10 Each.

The Girls and Parasols.  Always a Favorite.  Quite Magical.

Watching Them With Every Spin and Twirl, My Heart Fluttered Away.

It Was a Perfectly Lovely Afternoon.

Ready for Some Fluttering?

The Train.  Off to the Zoo.

The Japanese Garden.

All Paths Lead to the Waterfall.

The Adobe Farmhouse.

Adobe Keeps the House Cool in Summer.  Warm in Winter.

The Barn.

Every Bend in the Path is a Surprise.


So Glad You Could Come Along.  Do You Have a Favorite?   🙂

  1. I love this place! (From your pix, not first- hand experience!) And the two things I love most are your girls with the parasol and daughter one having her hand at the camera! You should work for the Chamber of Commerce!

  2. Hi Jeanie – Thank you for your kind words…the parasols were a huge hit and were amazing at shading from the sun…all twirling was an added bonus. 🙂

  3. What a gorgeous place. Especially the Japanese Garden. It would be easy to spend a whole day there. We spent an entire day in Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Canada. No zoo, but very similar. LOVE, love, loved the picture of the shade of the umbrella on the walk! Very unique perspective.

  4. The shade of the parasol photo…my favorite too, Calen. The BioPark is in our neighborhood and we’ve watched it (literally) grow over the past 20 years…it is so lush and beautiful now…it emerged from dirt and tumbleweeds…amazing what some water and decent soil and gardening expertise can do. 🙂

  5. Parasols and Hands Free don’t quite go together…but as for being more elegant than sunscreen…definitely, Magali. Thanks for coming along with us. 🙂

    1. I was trying to save money…and refused to pay $6 for a skimpy sunscreen tube, but jumped at the chance to spend $20 on parasols…priorities(!)…but I’m so glad I did. Thanks for enjoying the visit. 🙂
