Around Town - Nat'l Public Gardens Day at the ABQ Botanical Garden


How in the world do you celebrate National Public Gardens Day? By taking advantage of free admission to the Albuquerque Botanical Garden, that's how.

Thanks to Better Homes & Garden, ABQ BioPark patrons were able to visit the Botanical Garden free of charge all day long.

It was a great opportunity to capture a ton of pictures and take advantage of some really nice weather. Bright, sunny skies but not too hot. Perfect.

And Mayor Berry was also on hand to deliver a proclamation and read a book to the kids.

Altogether it turned out to be a really fun time and successful event. The BioPark was packed out which is always a good sight to see.
