    • About

      Although it’s been more than 66 million years since dinosaurs roamed the earth, The Dinosaur Place™ at Nature’s Art Village is home to over 40 life-size dinosaurs situated in a pristine 60 acre woodland setting. Stroll through over 1.5 miles of dinosaur-filled nature trails wrapping around a scenic lake. Access the trails by walking under the belly of a life-size brachiosaurus, an immense creature that measures 75 feet long and 40 feet tall! Enjoy the state-of-the-art playground with 5 unique jungle gyms including the one-of-a-kind SpaceNet, designed exclusively for The Dinosaur Place™. Get lost in a"MAZE"asaurus, a dinosaur-themed maze where families can play together to find their way out sliding down the mouth of a giant T-rex. For the brave, experience the new Animatronic Dilophosaurus Encounter - He moves, roars, and more! You also won’t want to miss watching the active volcano erupt every hour, the exciting Jurassic-themed Moon Bounce or the assortment of educational “touch & feel - what am I?” boxes situated throughout the park.
      During the summer, bring along your bathing suit & flip flops and prepare to get soaked in New England’s largest SplashPad®, a zero-depth water playground where dinosaur-themed water features delight kids and adults of all ages. Just added in 2015, you’ll have to experience the Vortex SuperWheel, an impressive giant spinning wheel which dumps thousands of gallons of water down on everyone below!
