Visit Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach
 Pack a picnic, bring the entire family & enjoy a day at the park
Dinosaur Cave Park is a beauti- ful oceanside, all-age and dog-friendly open space along Shell Beach. In some ways, the park continues its original attraction as
a family destination but today the attractions are the playground, the picnic area and the trails along the bluffs instead of a huge dinosaur sculpture and cave tours featured in the 1940s.
Visible from Highway 101 this park offers exquisite views of the Pacific Ocean – an ideal place for practicing some photography, holding a wedding ceremony and for people of all ages to enjoy.
A trail along the bluffs boasts
viewing platforms and a spacious grass area – a favorite among dog owners, it is also a popular picnic spot and perfect for various ath- letic activities. An amphitheater is available to rent for events.
Picnic tables next to the play
area are perfect for enjoying a snack or meal or to simply enjoy the surroundings. Well-kept bath- rooms are located by the parking lot and parking is free; street parking is also available.
In the play area an Orca, dino-
saur and other ocean animals add to the theme of the park. Children can climb over and into the large dinosaur eggs; a tire swing and boat promise hours of fun.
