Prehistoric Gardens

Ferns rustle in the wind. An unseen insect chirrups from a log. And high overhead hangs the head of a three-story-tall brachiosaurus. This is Prehistoric Gardens. In 1953, Ernie Nelson embarked on a three-year mission: to build a theme park filled with physiologically accurate dinosaurs. More than 60 years and 20 sculptures later, the park is thriving. A stegosaurus, triceratops, and anklyosaurus graze in this rainforest along with models of less well-known critters.

The beasts may be make-believe, but that rainforest is very real, by the way. A vast ecosystem of old-growth trees grows to enormous size, as do gigantic ferns and even the lowly leaves of skunk cabbage. It's all possible thanks to a natural valley that shields the park from the freezing Pacific winds. Annual rainfall reaches up to 10 feet per year, allowing for a flourishing garden of prehistoric algae and 300-year-old redwoods.

Customer Reviews

We visited the Prehistoric Gardens- we absolutely loved it! What a great place. It was so cool to meet the grand daughter of the man who built it. She was working in the gift shop. The dinosaurs were very cool and the garden was beautiful. I would highly suggest this attraction.
