From Drumheller to the Calgary Zoo, Alberta is the epicentre for anything and everything prehistoric and we wear that will pride! This summer, you can get up close and personal with lifesized herbivores, carnivores, and fellow primitive nerds, like us, at the Jurassic Forest, a one-of-a-kind reserve of fossils, fun, and fresh air!
Located in Gibbons, Alberta, just south of Edmonton, The Jurassic Forest is unlike anything else in the province.
Though it’s comparable to the Dino Park in YYC (which we also recommend you visit this summer), this 40-acre provincial playground also has a mini-golf course and 2 km of boardwalk trails, which they actually encourage you to explore via scavenger hunt.

Of course, because playing paleontologist can get a bit tiring, they also have a Cretaceous Concession that serves a rotating selection of hot dogs, pizza, and ice cream among other summer snacks.
If for any reason, you feel like bringing your own food, that’s totally allowed too – they just asked that you clean up after yourselves!
If you’d like to hit them up this summer, and we know that you do, you can visit their website here – and please, tag us in pictures if you go.
We really, really love dinosaurs – and other people who also love dinosaurs. We could start a club or something!
