Open year-round, enjoy free family fun at one of the Black Hills’ original tourist attractions. Dedicated to the public in 1936, Dinosaur Park is conveniently located in Rapid City on a ridge of sandstone that encircles the Black Hills. Along this ridge dinosaurs of the Late Jurassic & Early Cretaceous periods as well as dinosaur footprints have been found. Seven life-size concrete replicas of monstrous prehistoric reptiles inhabit the park and provide a perfect glimpse into the past. As you stand on Dinosaur Park witness spectacular 100-mile views. Step out on the deck and look to the east you can see the Badlands National Park. Dinosaur Park has a seasonal visitor’s center; complete with souvenirs, treats.
