    Dinny the Dinosaur

    Favorite thing: The official Calgary Zoo mascot is known as Dinny the Dinosaur. This 35 foot tall dinosaur statue built in 1937 is modelled after the Apatosaurus. In 1987 Dinny was declared an Alberta Historical Resource affirming his role as a Calgary landmark. He now stands in the Dorothy Harvey Gardens at the zoo.

    Favorite thing: Go to the Zoo. It takes all day and you don't get kicked out when it closes. We stayed there for over 2 hours after it closed. It is also easy to get lost in there.

    Fondest memory: I had a great time at the zoo. It takes all day and you don't get kicked out when it closes. We stayed there for over 2 hours after it closed. It is also easy to get lost in there.
