The concept of a park with multiple attractions is terrific, but it was 103 degrees outside, so all we saw was the aquarium. Our entry fee permitted a stroll through the botanical gardens. No thanks. There were courtyard benches, however, I was grateful to find. I am a somewhat disabled granny and with a walking stick found it troubling not to have enough benches inside, especially since little children were underfoot unpredictably.
Nevertheless the displays were beautiful, and the shark tank had one side visible in the cafe. The cafe food was excellent, generous and fairly priced. If you plan your visit carefully, you will find musical performances held at night.

$14 to view the aquarium and botanical gardens that took less than 2 hrs to complete. Would have been ok if less expensive. The aquarium was average considering it's in a landlocked state.

Love going to the Biological Park during any season but like summertime better. Thursday nights they have music and it’s great to see people of all ages gathered for an evening of entertainment. The aquarium is very interesting as well as the walk through all the gardens.

The gardens are well maintained and offer a big variety from the Sonoran and Mediterranean exhibits to the children’s fantasy garden, it is a well shaded green experience!

Next to the Rio Grande it is a great place to learn about the plants on Nee Mexico ... and beyond!

One of the best zoos I've been to in the United States. Really had a great time with friends. What I loved most was the diversity of the animals. Only thing I wish they would add is some kind of interaction with variety of the animals
