When I was a child my family visited this concrete dinosaur park, and I recently returned with my siblings. The owners are newish, and the shop and grounds have been well maintained or restored. This is (one of the last) old-school, tourist trappy and kitchy...More

Obscure Kitsch: I am about it. I loved this place, even in spite of the bugs and pollen. It is just so delightfully WEIRD. The history behind Dinosaur Gardens is fascinating, and I really enjoyed getting to check out the sculptures, up close and personal....More

Dinosaur gardens was great time and money spent. The place is clean and well organized. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The path you walk is flat, so pushing a stroller or wheel chair is easy. If its been raining it will be muddy....More

I only included a couple of the pictures we took. Since most roadside attractions like this are falling into disrepair, it's nice to see that this one is being kept together. There are several dinosaurs to see here. The price was good. You start and...More

I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was a little pricey for the .5 mile walk, but the kids did enjoy it. The statues are slightly exaggerated in size, but I guess that's what makes them so amazing. We...More

We had kids 2-13 and they all had fun. They enjoyed posing with all the statues and learned while doing it. High five for counting as a homeschool field trip! We bought the bags with fossils in them and the kids had a blast sifting...More

We had the best haunted spooky tour last October. They provide such good props and had so much fun scaring us! And it's not bad for kids over 13. Can't wait to visit Ossineke again in the fall!

This is a great place to take any child interested in dinosaurs. Some of the exhibits were a little worn down, which is to be expected with this type of attraction. With that being said my nephews and niece were very impressed with the displays....More
