Dinosaurs in Laguna Hills

I love it when I find a park that is more than just a couple swings and a slide. I get tired of the same old thing so I assume my kids do too. The Dinosaur Park in Laguna Hills is definitely not the same old thing. Located next to the Community Center (which has a wonderful display of fossils inside) and sports complex, the park was built on one the most fossil rich spots in the US. It inspires little ones to do their own excavations and helps stir up curiosity in a world that lived long before even Mommy and Daddy were born.

There are bones to climb on and caves with fossils imprinted on them. The kids will love pretending to drive the jeep.




There are shades over a portion of the playground which is wonderful on those hot summer days. The play structures are lots of fun and I love the panels featuring different prehistoric animals.

Great pics! This makes me realize we need to start exploring our own backyard here in Kentucky. We floated down Green River with the kids this weekend and they loved it. The best was free!
