Visitors to Lanark’s summer holiday dinosaur trail have given the event a big thumbs up.
Organisers Discover Lanark have been delighted by the response to the 7-week event which saw dinosaur hunters flock to Lanark from across Scotland and beyond, with over 7000 trail maps handed out.
94% of respondents to a survey undertaken during Jurassic Lanark rated the trail ‘very good’ and feedback on social media was equally positive.
“We have had the most Dino-tastic summer. Thank you again for all the wonderful experiences in Lanark over the summer.”
“My wee grandson loved it … thank you so much. Our wee one is away home telling everyone that Lanark is brilliant.”
“Had great fun day. It was awesome. Hope you do it next year.”
“Did this yesterday with the kids and it was fab. The town centre shops have really gone all out decorating their shops with dinosaurs. Anyone with keen dinosaur fans, this is a must do. Did I also mention its FREE to do. Thank you Discover Lanark for putting on a great event.”
2022 was the second Jurassic Lanark trail and generous sponsorship from Border Biscuits enabled the inclusion of new attractions including additional animatronic dinosaurs and weekend appearances by baby puppet dinosaurs, Titch and Nibbles, and crowd favourite Fergus, the friendly TRex. A prize draw for a Bumper Border Biscuits Bundle drew an impressive total of 1800 entrants.
Graeme McLeish, Chair of Discover Lanark said, “It’s been a great fun 7 weeks, we’re planning to make Lanark THE dinosaur destination for 2023.”
