Great family adventure! – Eccles Dinosaur Park is a wonderful place to take your children. The trails wind around forever, so the entire family gets wonderful exercise. Lots of shade trees to keep adventurers from getting overheated. There are plenty of tables set up, so you can take a lunch or a snack to eat. The dinosaurs are amazing and very entertaining for children. Inside the museum are robotic dinosaurs that walk and growl at each other in a life like fight. Also a little playground for the little ones to play on. Be sure to take a camera-park includes dinosaur and rider cut outs you can put your head through to look like you are riding on the back of a dinosaur-the kiddies love it. Amazing place to take the family for an afternoon of fun.
See life-size replicas of the creatures that lived 200 million years ago. – The Scene
The Dinosaur Park lets you wander through the Dinosaur Age and imagine the Earth when it was inhabited by the fierce predator T. Rex or the gazelle-like Dryosaurus. Realistic sculptures of more than 100 dinosaurs fill the Park in a lovely Utah setting. These creatures are reproduced based on the findings of fossil skeletal remains. The artists bring the dinosaurs to life by adding the muscles, skin and coloration, teeth and claws. You can hear the dinosaurs walking and roaring, the crash of trees brought down by powerful herbivores, the calls of pterodons gliding through the air brought to you by a high quality sound system throughout the Park.
Located adjacent to the River Parkway in the heart of Ogden, this 5-acre outdoor museum is unique in its exhibition of full-bodied creatures of the Dinosaur Age. See prehistoric crawlers, predators, marine creatures, and flying reptiles dating from the Permian through Jurassic and Cretaceous eras. Dinosaurs found in Utah are specially featured. The huge Triceratops, the fierce Utah Raptor, and the gentle Maiasaura are permanent residents of the Dinosaur Park. One of the most popular exhibits is the 45 foot-long, 20 foot-high Tyrannosaurus standing over its fallen prey, a Parasaurolophus. Across the pathway is the ferocious 25 foot-long Ceratosaurus stalking a Camptosaurus as it comes through the trees.
