Eccles Dinosaur Park

Full scale dinosaur sculptures cover eight acres of park that you and your family can stroll through at your own pace. There is a museum that houses real teeth, dinosaur bones and life-size audio-animatronic dinosaurs. You can spend a day there.

This museum and park is a must see for young dinosaur enthusiasts, and well worth a detour off Interstate 84!

Dinosaur terror.

What a fun place! Great photo opportunities. Fun stuff for kids, good info for adults.

George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park

The Ogden Eccles Dinosaur Park (formerly the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park) is passing its management from the city of Ogden to the park's own Foundation. What this means for visitors, according to the park, is that nine more acres will be added that will eventually be filled with outdoor dinosaurs (the park already has 130). The park will also increase its quotient of robotic and bellowing dinosaurs. There's no schedule yet for the prehistoric population increase, but the handover will happen July 1, and the park promises to start making changes soon thereafter.

Dinosaur trophy heads.

George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park

Growing all the time, concrete dinosaurs in the great outdoors. Haunted Dinosaur Park in October. Easter Egg Hunt among the dinosaurs!

[Brad, 01/20/2002]

Good to hear Eccles is still growing. We visited in 1994, when it was new and a little sparse. As with any post-Jurassic Park dino attraction, this one touted scientific accuracy and plenty of raptors. We liked these dinosaur trophy heads, and suspect Eccles Park might mutate given enough time.
