This 11-acre blufftop park at the northernmost end of the town of Pismo Beach overlooks the ocean and offshore sea stacks, has benches and viewing platforms, a network of meandering accessible paths, grassy areas, picnic tables, a small amphitheater, and a playground with whale-shaped climbing structures. It is named for a one-time tourist attraction, Dinosaur Caves, which used to offer tours of sea caves carved by waves in the rocks below and featured a statue of a large, headless concrete dinosaur. The statue remained unfinished because neighbors objected, and was demolished in the 1960s. The sea caves collapsed in the 1970s and can now be reached only by kayak. Dinosaur Cave Park opened in 2003. When funding permits, shade structures, landscaping, and a permanent restroom will be added.
