Parkland roars into action at community fun day

IF YOU have ever dreamt of walking among dinosaurs, this weekend's Botanical Parkland community fun day was your golden opportunity.

Chinchilla was visited by a 10-foot-tall raptor - much to the delight of all the local dinosaur enthusiasts - for the first major event to be held at the recently completed Botanical Parkland.

The brand-spanking-new $6 million space has proven to be the perfect place to host a myriad of community activities.

From market stalls to live music the community fun day had something to suit everyone including a live reptile show by none other than Ranger Stacey Thomson and Agro.

To see all the action from the community fun day, take a look at our photo gallery bellow:
