The Tiniest Connecticut Park Was Once Home To Massive Dinosaurs

200 million years ago, Dinosaurs once prowled around Connecticut. We have the footprints to prove it at Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill. Not as many people realize that there is another lesser-known park where you can also see the footprints of these enormous extinct creatures. Powder Hill Dinosaur Park is probably one of the tiniest parks in the Nutmeg state, but if you’re into dinosaurs, fossils, or just a little slice of Connecticut history, you’ll want to visit this ancient site.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
