Dinosaur State Park
At Dinosaur State Park, you can view 200-million-year-old dinosaur tracks that date to the early Jurassic period and constitute one of the most extensive dinosaur track sites in the country. The Park's Exhibit Center contains the track site, along with informational displays on dinosaurs and natural history. There are also 2+ miles of wooded nature trails. Each August, the park holds its Dinosaur State Park Day celebration, a family-oriented event with games, arts and crafts, music, educational presentations, and a mining sluice.
