Four-State Staycation: Erie Dinosaur Park

ERIE, Kan. – The Erie Dinosaur Park is an exhibit of several skeletal dinosaurs made of spare metal parts. The statues were created in 1989 by the late Robert Dorris for his daughter and sat his yard for several years. Dorris passed away in 2007, and his family donated 12 larger dinosaurs to the Erie Community Foundation, and a new Erie Dinosaur Park opened in 2015 at East 4th Street & Walnut Street in Erie, Kansas. Three additional statues were added in January 2021.

The park is open the second Saturday and third Sunday of each month from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. People can also schedule appointments by calling (620) 244-3461.
