Visitor Tips and News About Jurustic Park
Be sure to make use of the insect repellent available at the entrance.[Amy, 08/25/2014]
The artist, Clyde Wynia, was a delight and did his best to make sure everyone who visited got a personal tour.[Carla Grzybowski, 08/05/2014]
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.[Steve, 08/11/2013]
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.[Margaret Guyette, 06/24/2005]
Artist and amateur paleontologist Clyde Wynia is attempting to reconstruct all the now extinct creatures from Marshfield's "Iron Age." His wife Nancy creates her own art in a "Hobbit House" on the property. December 2007: Recent photo added of Clyde Wynia and some visiting fans.
