Awesome Sauce!

The zoo grounds were very clean, along side the restrooms were also very clean. Be sure and pack some snacks and lunch. Their food is very pricey, and not that great.

The Albuquerque zoo is one of four elements of the Albuquerque biopark: the zoo, aquarium, botanic garden, and Tingley beach. All are worth experiencing. The zoo has exhibits from all over the planet including Africa, Australia, tropical Americas, Mexico, and more. Strolling the zoo is great fun!

Spent to day at the zoo which was a very nice park. It was February and in the 70°'s so it was perfect weather. The animals were pretty active and fun to watch. The park is nicely laid out and beautiful. We also went to the aquarium and the botanical gardens which probably would be so nice to see in... More

This is by far one of my favorite ABQ attractions! I can never get tired visiting the zoo, whether it's with my family or my significant other. There are several different animals to learn about, and you can bring lunch to have in the park while watching/feeding the ducks. There is also a cafe on site where you can eat,... More

The ABQ Zoo is such a relaxing destination. Not too big, not too small, it's a real treasure, enjoyed by many.

The conservation efforts underway at the ABQ Zoo is astounding! You can tell these people care for all their residents and for the preservation of each species! I loved having people by some animals to give you information on the animals! That was delightful! The price is definitely worth it too! This zoo is ginormous and filled with animal love!... More

It's been many years since I visited the zoo. Went with family, including our two little grand daughters. They go all the time so they helped direct us to their favorite exhibits. I'm not very excited about seeing caged animals but this turned into a wonderful visit.
