Visitors to the ‘Dinopark’ will be able to see replicas of 35 dinosaurs, of which 19 will be life-size and 16 with moving parts. The project was actually first presented in the summer of 2019 but suffered a series of setbacks mainly brought about by the pandemic.
The developers of the project are currently in the process of finalising a series of technical modifications, which is expected to involve an investment of more than 3.6 million euros. The park will be built in the Parque Victoria area to the north of La Cala del Moral.

The site will also include a hiking route specially designed to look like the Jurassic period in southern Europe, as well as recreational areas such as a children’s playground, an aquatic area; excavation areas for young archaeologists, restaurants and food kiosks.
There will also be a viewpoint photographic spot, a souvenir shop and a scientific exhibition at the entrance to the park. In addition, there will be activities and services for adults and children such as face painting, entertainers and tattoo artists. There will be free admission areas in part of the facilities and green areas.
The park will offer temporary attractions at different festive events throughout the year such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter, as well as school holiday programmes. The attraction will remain open all year round, although the times will change depending on the season. Parking for up to 183 vehicles will be made available.
