Park Overview

The Waste-to-Art Dinosaur Park, sprawling over 3.5 acres, will open its gates to the public in January. It is adjacent to the Waste-to-Wonder Park, integrating seamlessly into the city's landscape of innovative recreational spaces. This park is unique in its concept, with 54 enormous dinosaur replicas ranging from 9 to 65 feet in height and up to 54 feet in length, all crafted from scrap metal, used tires, car parts, and horticulture waste.

Unique Features

The park is set to offer an immersive Jurassic Park-themed experience. Among its highlights are:

  • A 14-foot-high Stegosaurus with a white ambassador car in its belly.

  • A nest of Velociraptors in an old metallic chemical tank.

  • The tallest replica in the park, a 65-foot tall diplodocus, with its tail transformed into a slide.

  • A 53×50 feet fire-breathing and eye-blinking Tyrannosaurus Rex replica, evoking scenes from the Jurassic Park franchise.

  • The park also has other set of species such as Rajasaurus, Coelophysis and Brontosaurus.

Safety and Sustainability

Safety is paramount in the park's design. The dinosaur replicas are meticulously crafted, with sharp edges covered for safety. Recycled tires are used to cover the metal bodies, enhancing safety and aesthetic appeal. The park's landscape is further beautified with strategic planting of trees, shrubs, and grass, adding to the immersive experience.

Technological Integration

These life-sized models are not just static exhibits. They are engineered to move realistically, complete with dinosaur sounds like roars and hisses. Some even have the ability to spit fire. The park utilizes light and sound effects to recreate iconic scenes from the Jurassic Park films, further enhancing the visitor experience.
