My kids love this place. Open areas so they can run to each dinosaur. These a playground with picnic tables to enjoy lunch. Or you can buy lunch from the food spot. They sell corn dogs, drinks, burgers, etc. Price is more than I want to pay so I just pack a lunch. The dinosaurs are so fierce and realistic... More

I recently took my grandchildren to the George S Eccles Dinosaur Park and we all absolutely loved it. It not only was educational, the grounds and exhibits are amazingly well maintained. We totally enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the paths. The exhibits are situated in a beautiful natural setting outside. The restrooms were very clean, and the exhibits inside were... More

This is a great outdoor park for kids that love dinosaurs. They continue to add more to the park every year. I would not miss this attraction if you are in town and have kids.

Our 4 year old grandson was a little scared at first. But finally decided it was ok. Our 2 year old grandaughter wasn't afraid at all. He was fascinated by the way they dig the fossils out of the rock. It was a fun time.

It was great fun for adults and children alike. I highly recommend that you go on a day that's not too hot since the majority of the attractions are outside.

This place is fun anytime of year, educational, entertaining, and always a fun time. Our favorite has been the Halloween dress up trick or treat party. A good place for all ages with a fossil pit, playgrpund, and life size dinosaur models that make noise. My 3 year old was a little frightened by the sounds but we helped him... More

We love taking the little kids to the Dinosaur Park for Halloween. They have areas decorated and spooky but not frightening for little kids. They do a great job with the Dino roars Incorporated with the mummies and spookiness. They also have blow up surf for the kids to run around. They also have different booths handing out candy and...

Fun place for young kids. Wish all the dinosaurs moved to make it seem more real. My kids always ask why they all dont move. I think feeding the fish was the funnest part.

This is a great park with winding paths that allow visitors to encounter life-sized replicas of dinosaurs. There are many shady areas for a picnic as well.

If you want to remember what it felt like to be a kid, go to this park. You could bring the kids too. I imagine they would enjoy it.
