Dinosaur Provincial Park is an UNESCO World Heritage Site situated around more than two hours drive east of Calgary, Alberta, Canada or 48 kilometers, about a half-hour drive upper east of Brooks. The recreation center is arranged in the valley of the Red Deer River, which is noted for its striking barren wilderness geology. The recreation center is outstanding for being one of the wealthiest dinosaur fossil regions on the planet. Fifty-eight dinosaur species have been found at the recreation center and in excess of 500 examples have been evacuated and shown in galleries around the world. The eminent fossil collection of almost 500 types of life, from tiny greenery spores to huge meat eating dinosaurs, supported its turning into a World Heritage Site in 1979.
