Dinosaurs are coming to Catch A Smile in Gloucester

The fishing lakes at Catch A Smile in Gloucester will be home to some new dinosaurs when it reopens – including a Tyrannosaurus rex, as well as a dodo and a sabre-toothed tiger.

Families going fishing in Gloucester might end up catching something a bit bigger than they were expecting – as dinosaurs have started arriving at Catch A Smile in Quedgeley.

The family-friendly fishing charity has a new outdoor exhibition called Dan’s Dinos and friends, featuring sculptures of dinosaurs including a Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus and even a baby Pterodactyl emerging from its egg – alongside a dodo and a sabre-toothed tiger too.

The attraction just outside Gloucester has a fishing lake, petting corner, café and relaxation area and is specially designed for people with disabilities and additional needs. It is wheelchair accessible too.

Catch A Smile hopes the new dinosaurs will be ready to greet visitors when it reopens after lockdown in March 2021.
