Our newest exhibit ‘Dinosaurs: Awakened’ in Prehistoric Park is open!
Designed to educate, as well as entertain, the newly designed Prehistoric Park will take you on a journey back in time.
Watch for triceratops grazing among the bushes, then look up to see fearsome T-Rex’s banana-sized teeth ready to tear into his next meal. Don’t run! You haven’t actually travelled back in time – it just feels like it.
Get ready to marvel at the sights & sounds of these magnificent life-like creatures and see for yourself what Alberta might have looked like when dinosaurs reigned supreme. Be sure to explore Dinosaurs: Awakened on your next zoo visit. Included with daily admission, timed tickets are required to be purchased in advance.

Land of the Dinosaurs
Back in the Cretaceous Period, Alberta was a warmer, lusher place, with huge rivers and abundant plant life. Large herbivorous dinosaurs thrived – until they turned into a meal for their meat-eating cousins. When the dinosaurs died, their bones were often fossilized beneath the silt of flooding rivers, resulting in the wealth of dinosaur remains found in Alberta today.
