Welcome to Jurassic Forest

  • Take a trip back in time to the world of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures!

    Journey down the Discovery Trails and meet massive and majestic herbivores such as Stegosaurus and Triceratops, while sneaking past lethal predators including Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus. You'll see many familiar dinosaur faces, and maybe meet some creatures you haven't heard of before! Children will enjoy digging for dinosaur bones, playing in the playground, and even taking a ride on a dinosaur.

What's New at the Forest?

  • September means new hours and back to school field trips!

    September is here - and that means a few things to all of our guests and to Jurassic Forest as well! 

    It means that kids are heading back to school very soon, some may have even started school today with all students being in class by September 6th. It also means that everyone is looking forward to the start of hockey season, indoor soccer season, basketball season or the myriad of other activities and sports that kids participate in these days.

    For Jurassic Forest, it means that we can look forward to once again hosting lots of children as they embark on their first field trip of the new school year.  It’s a great time of the year as they learn about the changing of the season and the impact on the local flora and fauna, while also learning lots about dinosaurs and palaeontology in Alberta.

    Unfortunately, it also means we are seeing the sun coming up a little bit later each morning, and setting earlier in the evenings.  Its for this reason, that we will be adjusting our operating hours just slightly to deal with the earlier sunsets in September and October.  

    New Fall Hours

    Effective TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th our closing time is being adjusted from the previous 7:00 pm to the new 6:00 pm time, with these hours in place daily, Sunday to Saturday.  Please note this change if you have a Jurassic Forest excursion in your plans for September and October!

    We are also receiving lots of inquiries about the Close of Season date for 2016.  That’s a decision we will be making soon, but we are going to watch the weather a little bit more before we commit to a day and date.  

    Thank you to everyone for such a great Summer Season!

    Sincerely,
    Jurassic Forest

Did You Know?

The large cranial crest on Parasaurolophus was hollow, with tubes running from each nostril into the crest. The crest functioned in species recognition, and was used for communication between members of a herd.
