Death of the fiberglass dinosaurs



There are some of you out there who have an interest in concrete and fiberglass dinosaur sculptures (both good and bad). The Spreepark in Berlin was in operation between 1969 and 2002. Then it was closed and abandoned. On its grounds there are a number of toppled, full sized dinosaurs sculptures (and a headless plesiosaur model). A brief history of the Spreepark can be read at:

A large selection of photos of the park on flicker starts at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/spreepark/ It would appear to have excellent potential as a renegade skateboarding site or setting for a Stephen King novel.

Some interesting photos of the dinosaurs are below, although there are many others.
