Comments Off on National Public Gardens Day Free Admission ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden

National Public Gardens Day is on Friday May 9, 2014, and Albuquerque BioPark Botanic Garden joins in the celebrations with demonstrations, talks, and giveaways. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden is also involved.

You can get free admission to ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden on National Public Gardens Day, May 9 when you print out the free admission coupon at this link – click the yellow Get This Offer button. You will need to enter an email address and a zip code, but they don’t email the coupon to you – you’re taken straight to a page where you can print or download the coupon.

Last year the free admission tickets were via the Better Homes and Gardens magazine website and one coupon covered up to 10 people. This year I can’t see any info on how many people are covered by the coupon. So to be on the safe side, I suggest you download that coupon then print out one for each member in your party. That free coupon saves you $9 – $12.50 per adult admission!

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden at Museum Hill is the other participating New Mexico garden. You can go free on May 9 using the Santa Fe Botanical Garden free admission coupon. That saves $7 per adult admission.

If you’re traveling elsewhere, there are many other gardens in other states across the country participating in the National Public Gardens Day free admission offer.

National Public Gardens Day events at the ABQ Botanic Garden will run from 10 am – 2 pm on May 9, with demonstrations and talks on gardening in the southwest, including water-wise gardening. Activities include making a koi kite and recycled notebooks.

The ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden free admission coupon does not include the Aquarium – sorry! Stay outdoors and enjoy the spring scenery instead.

Albuquerque BioPark Botanic Garden is located at 2601 Central Avenue NW.
