“We’re pretty excited this year to go in and have, sound added to the park and, we’re looking forward to everybody getting a chance to go and listen to the dinosaurs walking through the woods back here” said Gary Stephan, owner & chief maintenance of Dinosaur Gardens.

Dinosaur gardens was built by Paul Domke who spent 44 years of his life constructing and assembling these life size dinosaurs.

“Dinosaur gardens is a great place to bring a family and have some fun, get some exercise. It’s been in business since 1935, and, we’re celebrating our 89th year in being business this year” said Stephan.

Dinosaur gardens features 27 dinosaurs and has a variety of family friendly activities such as mini golf, fossils digs, miner sluicing and more. They are open memorial day weekend through labor day weekend, as well as weekends in September.

“When you come here, you get to see the dinosaurs the size they were when they walked the earth” said Stephan
