Though the life-size dinosaur displays are no doubt nice to marvel at, there exists another park with such dinosaur sculptures since 1997.

Fu Shan Garden, located in Woodlands, is home to an array of interactive dinosaurs installations since more than 2 decades ago, making it the OG Jurassic Park in Singapore.

Though nowhere as realistic as the statues at Changi Jurassic Mile, the sculptures at the Woodlands playground looks more interactive.

More recently, the OG dinosaurs at Fu Shan Garden were introduced to new ‘friends’, including a stegosaurus with a hollow belly that serves as a great hiding spot.

T-Rex lurks in the grass

Besides the interactive installations, other dinosaurs in the vicinity also add to the Jurassic Park vibes.

This mini tyrannosaurus rex, for example, lurks behind the grass, waiting for the opportune time to feed on its prey.

The dimetrodon slide was among the first batch of dinosaur statues to ‘move in’ more than 20 years ago, making it one of the oldest ‘residents’ in the garden.

Most Woodlands residents who once played at the playground may have moved on to adulthood, but many of the early installations still remain there today.

Alternative to Jurassic Mile in the North

The garden is also a nice place for those who spent their childhood there to reminisce about  carefree times.
