If you have a child obsessed with fossils, this might be a good stop but not a great deal to see. There is a nice bike path around the park that leads to another park as well.

Great place for walking on well maintained paved bike paths. Great views of a rock quarry that can be walked down into and hunt for fossils.

Just fun place to take young kids. Fossiles are plenty and easy to find, and the fossiles found can be taken to home.

Fossil park is really great to take kids and teach them about the ancient sea beds. You can find some neat fossils here and it doesn't cost anything to hunt. I recommend taking a jug for water, a rinse bucket and a toothbrush for cleaning...More
