Discover the Excitment of the Albuquerque Biological Park


At the Albuquerque Biological Park, you’ll find much more than what meets the eye. Just a short drive from our Albuquerque apartments, the facility combines a zoo, aquarium and botanical garden, and beach setting. Next time you’re looking for something fun to do, consider visiting the park. Its popular attractions include:


The zoo is open between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily. You'll find some of your favorite wildlife, including lions, tigers, and bears. Along with up-and-close views of your favorite animals, you can enjoy feeding the animals, shopping, and educational programs.

Aquarium and Botanical Garden

Taking you along the Rio Grande, the aquarium features the wildlife you would encounter from Albuquerque to the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll spot sea turtles, jellyfish, sharks, and more. At the botanical garden, you’ll enjoy popular attractions like the butterfly house. Be sure to check out the upcoming events calendar for Garden Music nights, festivals, and more.

Tingley Beach

Ranked as one of Albuquerque’s top things to do, Tingley Beach is a must-visit attraction at the BioPark. Enjoy fishing at the lake or explore the walking paths for a scenic stroll. Young fishers can also enjoy an afternoon on the water with a children’s pond that doesn’t require licensing for those 11 years old and younger. Tingley Beach is open daily from sunrise to sunset.
