This lists as a Rapid City 'attraction' but in reality it is a collection of five concrete renditions of dinosaurs which I suspect are neither to scale or accurate renditions and really would only be suitable as a childrens playground. No photos to add as they weren't worth it.

Always an easy and fun spot to take our grandkids - they love the adventure of the dinosaur climbs. A nice little snack bar located nearby is the icing on the cake for them. Reccomend the visit.

This was an extremely random trip to the park my daughter and I took in our final hours in rapid city. Honestly, the park felt like something out of Pee Wee's Big Adventure and I absolutely loved that quirky feel. We only spent about 15 minutes there but they stood out amongst everything we did in South Dakota.

An awesome up close view of five dinosaurs - authentic in size - built during the post depression years. Fun for the little ones to climb on, incredible views of both east and west Rapid City, and breathtaking views of the Black Hills!

At the top of the mountain is where you will find dinosaur park. Just simple statues painted green; the rest is up to your imagination. FUN place for kids to explore.

My husband remembers coming here when he was young. We took our children twice, and this time we came with our two grandchildren. Its nice to see them have as much fun, without any rides or special effects... just stone dinosaurs. I'm not sure I understand the attraction, but all kids really seem to like it!

If I was writing a review on just the dinosaurs I would give this a one or two star because the dinos are old and in a general state of disrepair. I like the concept and I'm sure young kids would enjoy this, but come on Rapid City, Spring for some paint and spruce them up! I upped my review... More

Don't plan to spend much time here. Not much to do or see, but the sheer size of the plaster dinosaurs was cool. We were there for 45 mins and that was enough. Beautiful view of the city from the top of the hill.

Kids love going up to the dinosaurs. Climbing on them pretending they are alive. Great view of the city too. At the end of the excursion there is a gift shop with trinkets and serves up ice cream, a cold soda and hot dogs for a nominal charge.
