One of the most unique tourist attractions on the Oregon Coast, the Prehistoric Gardens is great for young and old alike. Just 17 miles north of Gold Beach lies an untouched prehistoric garden complete with 23 life size dinosaurs set among a lush 300 year old Oregon rainforest. The self-guided tour allows you to casually stroll along the path and discover what the Earth was like millions of years ago. Family owned and operated since 1955, this eco-friendly attraction is a must see! Pet-Friendly! Dogs are allowed to take the tour for FREE as long as they are on a leash.

It's pretty fun to walk around the park. It's on the smaller side, very pretty though. I wouldn't quite call it worth $12, but fun to do once. I wanted to play the Jurassic Park theme song as I walked through, but cell reception was...More

It was better than expected. Kids and I loved it and it felt like you were taking a walk back in time with the redwoods the ferns and a few bridges crossing the stream

Its not huge and yes the dinosaurs are kind of cheesy, but the flora and plant life is worth walking through. It is kind of expensive, I believe $12 for adults, but it supports the park and this beautiful rain forest.

Highly recommend seeing this, as it gives you insight into the botany of the Pacific Rain Forest. Dinosaurs abound off the path, some are very little so look close! Great learning experience for young and old alike. Gift shop on sight for souvenirs.

The garden provides a fun, quick walk through prehistory. There are informative signs and lifesize dinosaurs along the walk. The path is easy to walk and lined with diverse vegetation. Even in the rain, the tree canopy makes it a comfortable walk with a hood...More

$12 for adults and $8 for children. Having 6 family members, it was pretty expensive for a 20-25 minute walk. It was interesting that the dinosaurs were built to scale so you can get perspective on their sizes. The gift shop was decent and the...More
