Dinosaur Provincial Park

Dinosaur Provincial Park, located 48km (30 miles) northeast of Brooks, Alberta, Canada, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for having one of the richest deposits of dinosaur fossils in the world. The park is two hours away from Calgary and is situated in the Red Deer River valley, which is notable for its striking badland topography. Fifty-eight dinosaur species have been uncovered here and more than 500 fossils have been extracted and displayed in museums around the world. Its extensive fossil assemblage of 500 species, ranging from microscopic fern spores to large carnivorous dinosaurs, led to the park being declared a World Heritage Site in 1979.
