ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Starting Oct. 1, visitors to the ABQ BioPark will get to enjoy the Penguin Chill exhibit, the reptile building at the zoo and the BUGarium at the Botanic Garden. 

The areas were previously closed during the pandemic. 


The City of Albuquerque reports that the closures allowed workers to implement COVID-safe practices that are suitable for the areas.

"We appreciate everyone's patience as we work through reopening more city facilities and popular destinations in the safest way possible," said Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller.

Indoor exhibits will have capacity limits. 

Masks are required at the ABQ BioPark.
