Starting October 1, construction will begin at Dinosaur Park to create accessible pedestrian routes, update safety features, and upgrade visitor amenities including site interpretation. The project is expected to last approximately seven months. You can explore more stunning views of Rapid City from Hanson-Larsen Memorial Park or see actual dinosaur fossils at the Museum of Geology.

Find free family fun at one of the Black Hills’ original tourist attractions, open to the public since 1936!  Walk the park to see all seven life-size concrete replicas of dinosaurs. The Visitors Center features unique gifts and souvenirs. Food service includes 12 flavors of ice cream and lunch items.
