While it may not be Jurassic Park, the new Science Park at the Don Harrington Discovery Center in Amarillo offers kids a fun way to explore science, amazing animatronic dinosaurs, and all while enjoying the outdoors and fresh air! It’s a total win-win!
This brand new outdoor science park features a fossil dig pit, hands-on learning, and engineering marvels. The Outdoor Science Park includes some old favorites in a new setting like the gazing ball, whisper dishes, chair lift and the tennis ball launcher. The new exciting elements that were installed
include a Kundu Drum, Grandioso Chimes, Kettle Drum, and huge life-sized animatronic
dinosaurs- a Triceratops and a T-Rex! This new park adds a dynamic space for school
groups and families, filled with ample seating for a picnic lunch or snacks during your visit to
Park hours are the same as normal DHDC visitation hours, with the exception of inclement
weather. Current DHDC hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00am- 3:00pm. Discovery Center
regular admission includes access to the Outdoor Science Park.
Funding for DHDC’s new Outdoor Science Park is provided by ASCO, Xcel Energy, and the
Future’s Bright Donors.
