One of the most unique tourist attractions on the Oregon Coast, the Prehistoric Gardens is great for young and old alike. Just 17 miles north of Gold Beach lies an untouched prehistoric garden complete with 23 life size dinosaurs set among a lush 300 year old Oregon rainforest. The self-guided tour allows you to casually stroll along the path and discover what the Earth was like millions of years ago. Family owned and operated since 1955, this eco-friendly attraction is a must see! Pet-Friendly! Dogs are allowed to take the tour for FREE as long as they are on a leash.

Good for outdoors and the vegitation in the area really reminds you of the prehistoic period from movies. You can't miss it from the road and I think would be great for the kids as it is outside and good to do as a family.

Took my grandson to the pre-historic gardens. He is 13, so I wasn't sure what he would think about it . We both enjoyed the walk on the trail and actually made two rounds. I jokingly said we needed to get our money's worth as...More

Did not expect this and we only stopped b/c our daughter requested it...super glad she did. A short little walk through the temperate rainforest with life-sized dinosaur replicas. In addition, lots of info about the flora of the region and its evolution.

Prehistoric Gardens is a very unique experience and I recommend it to everybody. It's like going to Jurassic Park but a wizard showed up earlier and turned everything to stone. You are really spoiled when you get to walk an exotic forest, view art, and...More

Loved it! The garden itself is gorgeous and the dinosaurs are impressive! Was surprised how much info they put into it, it's not just a roadside attraction, would make a good school field trip.
