Most People Have No Idea This Unique Park In Utah Exists

If you want to learn more about some of Utah’s first residents, there are several places to check out. There’s the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point, the Natural History Museum in Salt Lake City, the Dinosaur Museum in Blanding and of course we have an entire Dinosaur National Monument in Vernal. There’s another dinosaur park in Utah that many people don’t even know about: the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden. Check it out!

The George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park switches to its fall hours on September 5th. It’s open Monday – Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (the museum closes at 5:00 p.m.). Admission is $7 for adults; $6 for seniors and students; $5 for children ages 2-12; free for children under two years old.

The park is fully handicapped-accessible, so everyone can enjoy a day here! Bring a picnic and plan at least two hours to wander through this beautiful, tree-filled dinosaur park.
