ABQ Biopark Castle, New Mexico


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”!
