Jerrassic Park dinosaur.

Jerrassic Park

Great spot to stop and take a break from riding and have a picnic! My boys loved this park as they love dinos. We really enjoyed walking around and seeing all of the different artwork. No bathrooms in that area of the park.

Jerrassic Park

Jerrassic Park started about ten years ago with a single dinosaur placed at the entrance to the Military Aviation Museum by owner Jerry Yagen (hence the spelling of "Jerrassic"). The collection is now up to 13 or 14, and the dinos are all made and installed by metal artist Gilbert Ramos. Free admittance and free parking, but no bathrooms -- so stop elsewhere first (unless you're going to the museum as well).

Metal Dinosaurs and Aviation Museum

The dinosaur park has been well landscaped and the dinosaurs have been painted. Park beneath the pines across the road.

Large 3/4 scale metal dinosaurs T-Rex, raptors, pterodactyl, hatching raptors, triceratops and a apatosaurus. All expertly made and set alongside a pond with a fountain at the entrance to the Aviation Museum in Pungo, a suburb of Virginia Beach.
