I liked thw view from the park. Dinosaurs are quite old but they are still charming. Attraction is free so you can spend easily half an hour walking around them. Your children will like it for sure!

Let them run! This is perfect for kids of all ages. Plenty to see and do. Gives you a much better perspective on how big these giants may have been. There are also many great views of Rapid City from here and many trails that...More

Great park overlooking the city. My 2 1/2 year old was in awe the entire time. The views were incredible. The climb was a little steep and caught us off guard, but it's worth the trip.

Made the short stop on the way to Mount Rushmore. Has great views overlooking Rapid City. Cute little area for children of all ages I wouldn't recommend stopping and if you have the time. Don't take extra time just to see it it's not worth...More

You park at the bottom then walk up the steps. There's about 5 dinosaurs and the best part is the view of the city from the top.

Yes, but be aware that if your pooch has any cranky joints, all those steps are going to be hard on her.

That steep winding road everyone is mentioning also really doesn't have a shoulder. I have walked it before, but you need to be careful. The steep turns mean cars can't always see you coming.
