Really cool place, and the old guy who makes everything does a fun tour of his creations! Parking seems to get scarce when it's nice out. We had a nice picnic lunch on the grounds, and the owners didn't mind at all.

Torch Waving Dragon.

Dragon of Marshfield

While traversing to the Hodag, we traveled down West Veteran's Parkway in Marshfield. There to the left we saw a bronze dragon. To see it better, go to the next light, turn left, then turn left at the next street. Go down two blocks and turn left a gain. You'll see him, and you can park on the dirt. We believe he was donated by the Rotary Club.

Jurustic Park - Metal Dinosaurs

Over 250 metal folk art sculptures peer at you from the woods and swamp at Jurustic Park. Meet the sculptor or his wife while you stroll around their front and side yard. Mr. Wynia has created all these sculptures out of found objects, most coming from antique farm equipment. All the sculptures have a lovely red rust patina -- ask Mr. Wynia how they get that lovely patina. Most of the sculptures move when the wind blows or with a slight touch. This is not a hands-off place. Don't miss the peeing frogs.
