Though the creatures on display at Dinosaur World don’t need much space to roam, plenty of care has been taken to furnish them a comfortable habitat. They peer imposingly from the hillsides of Kentucky, crane their necks up through native trees, and stomp through prairie fields. Although a life-size mammoth or T. rex might be hard to miss, little visitors might still jump with delight at noticing a baby dino suddenly appear from behind a bush. Giant brachiosaurus necks arch high above treetops, while toothy meat-eaters and spiny stegosauruses roam the world below. The fiberglass, steel, and concrete models reach up to 80 feet in length, and are built according to the latest scientific discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like and what styles were trendy in the Mesozoic era.
The first Dinosaur World location was a former alligator farm in Florida and five years later another one was opened in Kentucky. As Swedish-born Christer Svensson began to fill it with statues, he consulted with experts around the world to not only create realistic reptiles but to surround them with fun, educational activities. Kids can sift through sand to find shark’s teeth, gastropod shells, and trilobites in a fossil dig, get to know some lizards a little better on the playground, or examine ancient eggs and raptor claws in the museum.
Friends of Riverside Drive, a collective volunteer effort, began with a vision to transform local neighborhoods by planting dogwood and yoshino cherry trees. Along with tree plantings across neighborhoods and involvement with the Riverside Blossom Festival, Friends of Riverside Drive’s main work is restoring beauty and dignity to Riverside Drive, a community road that provides the main route to the National Cemetery and once served as a recognized, living memorial to war veterans.
A marksman steps into his lane, steadies his aim, and fires at the target hanging 25 yards away. On Sumner Gun & Supply's 10-lane indoor range, this scenario plays out daily as shooters hone their handgun proficiency. In addition to overseeing open-range time, Sumner's defense experts teach classes, such as youth safety seminars and advanced pistol operation. Between classes and sessions on the range—which is equipped with adjustable benches for disabled and elderly guests—a lounge area encourages guests to relax upon black leather couches while watching a flat-screen television. For frequent visitors, the staff offers several membership options.
Beyond the range, Sumner Gun & Supply extends to a pro shop, where arms specialists serve sport shooters, hunters, security officers, and collectors of antique weapons. An onsite gunsmith also dispenses services, including the cleaning, repair, restoration, and customization of firearms.
