Our 5 year old (who is mad about dinosaurs) loved this park. It was a bit out of the way, but worth the drive. We didn't spend a long time here, as he was so eager to see each dinosaur that he pretty much ran the whole way around, so we were finished quickly! The dinosaurs are hidden amongst the... More

My daughter's preschool class went here for a field trip and my wife and I were able to tag along. I've never been out to this area but it was well worth the trip. This place is not well advertised, the only sign I noticed on our drive was a tiny one 1km away from the destination. The forest was... More

When you first arrive and walk toward the entrance to Jurassic Forest, you get the feel of the Jurassic movies. There are two trails to take a leisurely walk. Both trails are well constructed wooden pathways. Both trails have informational signage pertaining to the dinosaurs and or the folage or even frogs and such. The Dinosaurs range from small to...

We got there shortly after 10 am on a Sunday. I expected it to already be pretty busy, but there were only a few other families there when we arrived (it definitely started to fill up afterwards though). The cost is actually quite reasonable, if you can snag some of their deals and discounts. For a family of 4, admission... More

A lot of fun for a young family. The dinosaurs look great and there are lots of paleontological and current ecological information available. There is small museum and mini-golf on-site as well.

Had fun checking out the animatronic dinosaur. Lots of informative plaques along the trails. Would suggest it for people who's kids are at least in kindergarten. The mini golf was fun too!

So how did two adults wind up at this "kid attraction"? One of us wanted to go to K-Days this year, and we found out that the Edmonton Attractions Pass is a great option for getting more for your money. (As of the date of this review, a 4-attraction "U-Pick Pass" is $35 plus GST for an adult, making it... More

Well thought out, great walking paths and the dinosaurs were surprising to everyone. The kids loved it and had a chance to read about them and decide which was everyone's favourite. Some of them took a few minutes to move but worth the wait. Gift shop was very reasonable as well as the snack bar.

We went by early in the morning and it was ok. Actually anti-climatic after our visit to the Tyrell Museum at Drumheller. Got our boys (10 & 13) to do the scavenger hunt to keep them interested. We did stay for the whole morning, brought our own lunch to eat in the picnic area. However, overall, it's more for the... More

We had a wonderful day walking through the park. There was a lot to see and lots of informative boards to read. The weather was beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. I found it was easy to find and ample parking. The whole park was very clean, plenty of washrooms. I would definitely recommend this especially for the younger... More
