Borrego Springs Dinosaurs

Go for the wildflowers, stay for the ginormous dinosaurs. Created from metal by artist Ricardo Breceda and free to drive around and see. Two dinosaurs fight, a sea serpent slithers under the road. Spot the sculptures from your car. See local fossils at the Visitor Center. Here's a partial sculpture location map.

Visitor Center Hours: Daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Oct. 1-May 1); 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Sat., Sun. & Holidays Only (June 1- Sept. 30)
