WOW! I have to say that this is one of the best Zoo's that I have ever seen. Being the middle of Februry we expected to see very little but with the beautiful climate in Albuquerque all but he Parrots were out. The flock of Flamingos that greet you walked right up to us as we entered (I love Flamingos and have never seen them anywhere). The Polar Bears, Camels, Seals, Monkeys, Elephants, Giraffe, Zebras, Lions, Tigers...Amazing! Take the train to the Aquarium and Botanical Gardens. The kids Secret Garden is magical! And the Aquarium is great too, especially considering the size. A really fun day for two 50 year old kids from Ohio!

Pros: Range of animals, layout and ease of viewing, habitat

Cons: During the week in February, non of the snack bars were open

The zoo is a excellent break for the whole family!
If you are going cuckoo and the kids are going ape, corral them up and take them to the zoo.
The fresh air and nice walk will do wonders.

Pros: shaded parking, summer activities, great for photos

My father was military and I married into it and traveled all over the United States. Albuquerque has one of the very best zoos I have seen.

Be sure to visit all day and see everything!

Just added is an area near the elephants (where the kids play) that consists of pipes under a grate that visitors stand upon. Randomly, these pipes spew water up into the air from several spots under the grate area (and even sideways from a couple of faux rocks). Young and old take turns getting doused...a great way to cool off!

Visit the new cougar cubs at the Cat Walk, the fabulous Polar Bear exhibit and the Sea Lion viewing area every single time you visit.

Cheaper than going to the movies!

Pros: One of the best ever, Misters at bird show, Lovely park area too

Cons: It is a "hot" state, Get good directions!

I think the zoo is an excellent place for both young and old, to discover the unknown world of animals. Too some, maybe to see a favorite animal. The Zoo, needs a tad bit of renuvating. But, I still enjoy the zoo.
