ABQ Biopark Castle, New Mexico – in the unlikely surroundings of Albuquerque BioPark a huge dragon can be found guarding a castle.
From the ABQ Biopark website:
“Visit ABQ BioPark
Starting with a fourteen-foot high topiary dragon that guards the castle gates, visitors get a larger-than-life perspective of plants, gardening, horticulture and people.
The garden entrance is a huge rabbit hole where six-foot earthworms burrow through the walls. There are nine-foot high potted plants; an eleven-foot tall watering can; giant soil particles that illustrate the drainage properties of sand and clay; a gargantuan “nurse” tree complete with bird nest and kid-sized eggs; a seedling forest with enormous acorns and pinecones; a walk-through pumpkin 42 feet in diameter and two stories high; and a vegetable garden with potatoes, onions and carrots that only Superman could lift.
And that's only a sample of the fun that's in store for Fantasy Garden visitors”!
Open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday (Closed Monday)
Closed: Jan. 1, Thanksgiving and Dec. 25.
