New dinosaur-themed water park to open in Croatia
POSTED 19 Feb 2019 . BY Luke Cloherty
A new water park is set to open in Istria, Croatia, at the end of Q2 2019.

Themed on dinosaurs, Paleo Park will open near the famous paleontological sites in the Mon Perin campsite in the Bale area of the Croatian region and aims to trade as a themed water amusement park and an educational facility.

Stretching to an area of 16,000sq m (172,223sq ft), Paleo Park will feature a dinosaur-shaped pool, a relaxation pool, a children’s pool, a family pool, a hydromassage pool, hot baths, a spa pool, an indoor restaurant, a covered outdoor bar area, a sunbathing area and a souvenir shop.

There will also be a number of differently sized dinosaur replicas dotted around the park, showcasing different species of the extinct creatures.

"After more than six months of heavy machinery work, the pool complex is almost complete and now needs to be completely finalised," said Ivan Maričić, board member of the Mon Perin campsite.

The park is looking to create and maintain relationships with local nurseries, as well as local primary and secondary schools in Istria so that they can make full use of its educational facilities.

"Dinosaur bones, including a back vertebra of Histriasaurus, the world’s oldest known member of the strange sauropod (long-necked plant-eating dinosaur) group Rebbachisauridae, were found in the Bay of Colona in Bale in 1992," said a park statement, pointing out the area’s relation to paleontological history.

"Remains of meat-eating dinosaurs and a large sauropod related to the giant Brachiosaurus have been discovered as well."
