Whoah those stairs though! Besides all of the climbing this is a cute park with dino statues and kids love to climb on them. I loved the view of Rapid City

Free. What more can you say? The cement dinosaurs were awesome, but even as an adult with longer legs it was difficult to climb up on the dino's. Steps/stairs on one side of each one would have been great. Adults and kids will enjoy the park, but it is not set up for the elderly as there are a LOT... More

This park is a nice detour if you're doing the area attractions. It's a little out of the way but I think it's worth the drive. The park sits at the top of a hill which provides sweeping views of Rapid City. The dinosaurs are nothing to write home about but it's fun to see what people in the 1930's... More

We had a little extra time and decided to stop by. I guess I was expecting more than the 5 dinosaurs that they have. It was pretty interesting to know that these were put up in the 1930s and I am sure at the time they were impressive. It might be more fun to go with kids.

I have always enjoyed visiting this park. The park has a great day and night view. The skyline of Rapid City. The kids can wander around the dinosaurs while you relax and take in the view. Be prepared for a climb up some stairs.

A nice hike if you are an adult. More of a playground for kids but then it's a free attraction. Only takes 30 minutes. Ps.....the gift shop is pathetic.
