Great free adventure

Loved sharing this park with my daughter on her first trip to Rapid City. They have added new dinosaurs and we really enjoyed spending time here.

The dinosaurs statues were created back when Mt. Rushmore was being developed and are huge. Be prepared to climb to see them all, but it will be worth it. The big one you can see from everywhere.

Zen Chi good vibes can found at this historical park nestled on the Curves of Skyline Drive. Please donate or learn how to contribute to the Rapid City Public Parks foundation for the remarkable upkeep of all our wonderful parks here in the Blackhills of South Dakota.

I stopped by here because I read about it, in just about every travel article I've seen about Rapid City. It's fun for kids. For adults, it's worth stopping by if you like to visit nostalgic travel stops. It offers a great view of downtown.

Wonderful place to view the city and let the kids burn off a little energy while experiencing the life size dinosaurs. It's a little bit of a climb to the top using the winding stairs but so worth it when you get there. There is also a very nice gift shop and plenty of parking.

We stopped here while on vacation with our kids (8, 5 and 2) for something free and easy to do. The park is on top of a hill, and offers amazing views of the city and surrounding countryside, up to 100 miles. You can even see the Badlands, on a clear day. The 6 dinosaurs and one non-dinorsaur are made... More

You have to climb quite a few steps to get up the hill to see the dinosaurs up close, but the kids really enjoyed it. The gift shop at the bottom was neat and also had ice cream! There was a coupon in the travelers guide for the ice cream, so it was a pretty good deal!

The dinosaur exhibits are a bit run down and could use some work. But it's free and the views of Rapid City and the surrounding area are spectacular. Great for a free quick activity.

Dinopark is nice for what it is. Its free and has a vintage nostalgia to it. If you like things like that. The view is really neat from up there. Wish there was more dinosaurs, though. Gift shop was nice. If you are unable towalk up stairs i wouldn't recommend this place. There is no ramps to the top once... More
