Discovery Park in Union City to Feature Dinosaurs
UNION CITY, TN - Dinosaurs are returning to West Tennessee.
The Union City Daily Messenger reports that The Discovery Park of America, which is set to open Nov. 1 in Union City, will feature four "islands" of stationary dinosaurs from the Triceratops to the well-known Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The educational facility will also feature 10 indoor galleries that explore topics from natural and regional history to science and technology.
The park cost about $100 million to build and was largely funded by Union City native Robert Kirkland through the Robert E. and Jenny D. Kirkland Foundation.
