The dinosaur is still looking good.

The skeletal red T. rex, built out of pieces of farm machinery, is the centerpiece of a downtown pocket park.

Dinosaur Den

A sculpture garden in the downtown area is tucked between two buildings. Its main feature is a large metal dinosaur skeleton sculpture at the back. Other metal sculptures can be seen as well in here and throughout the downtown, along Walker Street.

The skeletal red dinosaur, roughly approximating a T. rex, has been there since at least 2011. He seems to have been built out of pieces of farm machinery.
