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.

I remember my parents taking me to Dinosaur Park when I was very young. All my brothers and sisters lined up on the tail of one and took pictures. LOVED THIS. So very glad it is still there. I do not recall seeing the "eggs" though. They were there when I was young. Also sad that vandals like to spray... More

I felt like it was a blast in the past. The statues themselves are somewhat archaic and humorous BUT when you consider the time period they were created, 1939 it is a great historic site. The view from the top of the hill is stunning. I love the whole idea behind the fact that it is 80 years old. Our... More

The dinosaurs on top of this hill have been there for several years, adding a little history and mystery to the whole concept of a Dinosaur Hill. But gives your kids a little time to run off steam and expell some energy, along with some great photo ops. We took our grand kids up here for the first time, continuing... More

Dinosaur Park sits on a hills in central Rapid City known as Skyline Drive. The Dinosaurs have been there for 50 or more years. Made out of concrete and huge in size a fun place to take the family and do photos. It is free but be aware of the stairs to get to the statues.

I like that they try to give visitors an education about the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, but there are too many people who are there to criticize the accuracy of the statues to make it truly enjoyable. However, it does make for a great view of the city, day or night!
