Dinosaur Park

Description

Built in 1936 as part of the WPA program, this quirky park sits atop a sandstone ridge with 100-mile views. Paved walkways take you up past the five original life-size, concrete-and-steel dinosaurs—an Apatosaurus, a Tyrannosaurus rex, a Triceratops, a Stegosaurus, and a Trachodon, which were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990; the other two dinosaurs were built in the 1950s. Admission is free, and the site has a visitors center, café, and gift shop.
