Dinosaur Provincial Park
Some of the most extensive dinosaur fossil fields in the world are found here; the area's badlands and cottonwood river habitat are the other significant features that resulted in the park's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Strange land formations rise up on all sides, sculpted by wind and water into hauntingly beautiful shapes sunbathed in terra cotta, bronze and amber. The park is also home to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology's Field Station (Park Visitor Centre). The Provincial Park is not located at or near Drumheller. It is at least a two hour drive away. Guided Hikes and Tours, Self Guided Trails, Children's and Family Programs, Dinosaur Digs, RV & Tent Camping, and much more! Due to COVID-19, staff safety, protective measures and physical distancing are among the many issues that site managers and operators are addressing in order to get up to full capacity.
