Little hike to the top, so it's not for the faint of heart or those in need of assistance. Fun for those with kids that love dinosaurs, the gigantic size of them will absolutely please them.

The Dinosaur Park was OK, but not something that I would go out of my way to go to, or see. It is free, so that's nice, but it's really just a "look out " point, where you can view the city.

This is a great place to go. It's free! Offers awesome views both day and night. It's nice because it's just life size cement dionosaurs. Nothing animated. There is a great trail,system as well as several Geocaches in the area.

First, know you'll have to climb roughly 1,374 stairs. Ok maybe not really, but it's certainly not handicap accessible. Once you get up to the dinos you'll discover they're a bit off... these were designed back when paleontologists thought Dinosaurs were more like reptiles than birds. Some of them have even been proven to have never existed Nonetheless, if you... More

The trip up to the park is steep and curvy. Once you're at the top, the view is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. If you want to go up to the park, you'd better be in good physical shape. There are 90 steep steps to climb. At the top, there is the one big dinosaur and some smaller ones,that's it. Since I'm... More

It is worthy to be their once. It is close enough from city center and can be reached even by walking (but it is hard a little bit). There are few rare examples of dinosaurs whci can be seen only here. I have been visited other dinosaur parks and this one is not bad. If you like archeology then you... More
