Dinosaur Park Truganina Dino Head

The crowning glory at Dinosaur Park is the larger-than-life dinosaur head emerging from the ground.  It’s sturdily constructed for climbing and sitting on and there’s a set of small toddler slides running down.

Starting from the head of the dinosaur runs the curve of the dinosaur’s spine that hugs the perimeter of the playground and ends with the skeleton of the dinosaur tail!
