Dinosaur scavenger hunt comes to Gwinnett County Parks this summer

Several giant foam dinosaurs have been relocated to secret locations throughout Gwinnett parks, in Atlanta, Georgia, this summer.

There are eight dinosaur statues in total to be found; these are Citipati, Daspletosaurus, Maiasaura, Pachycephalosaurus, Pterodactyl, Dilophosaurus and stegosaurus.

The dinosaurs will be placed in secret locations throughout Gwinnett Country parks through the summer for visitors and local residents to find.

The dinosaurs are on the move! You will soon be able to look for them at our parks. We will post clues on here to help…

Previously located at a shopping center in the Duluth-area, the statues were once considered eyesores – with country commissioners deciding back in 2015 that they could no longer be there due to a lack of permission.

Park goers are encouraged to post selfies with the dinosaurs, sharing them on social media using the office hashtag #MeetMeAtThePark. Over the summer, Gwinnett Country parks will release clues on their locations for visitors to find.

This isn’t the first time that the country has held dinosaur-focused events, having held two such events last year. However, this is the first to take the form of a scavenger hunt.

For more on the event, as well as clues on the locations of all eight dinosaurs, follow the @GwinnettParksandRec official Facebook and Instagram accounts of Gwinnett Parks.

The event is part of the “Meet Me in the Park” program – a program sponsored by both the Walt Disney Company and the National Recreation and Park Association.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
