DISTRICT’S OWN ‘JURAS­SIC PARK’

Bangkok Post - - URBAN LIFE -

KALASIN: Tourists are flock­ing to a pub­lic park-turned “Juras­sic Park” in Muang district as the first cold breezes greet this north­east­ern prov­ince.

Res­i­dents in Kalasin and vis­i­tors from other provinces now con­sider the venue, cov­er­ing two rai of land, in Kalasin mu­nic­i­pal­ity as one of their top tourist des­ti­na­tions.

The park, orig­i­nally named Kaeng Don Klang, has been turned into a “vast lawn with fig­ures of di­nosaurs” Kalasin mayor Charuwat Bun­phoem said.

A tower has also been built to al­low vis­i­tors to have a bird’s-eye view of di­nosaurs of dif­fer­ent species.

“Peo­ple can visit the park free of charge,” said Mr Charuwat said, who ex­pressed a hope that the at­trac­tion will boost tourism to the district.
