The Dinosaur Park Formation is a dig site in Jurassic World Evolution.

InGen Database Description

The Dinosaur Park Formation forms the top layer of the Belly River Group in southern Alberta. It lies above the Oldman Formation and beneath Bearpaw Formation. The formation dates to the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous, 76 million years ago.

It is named for the Dinosaur Provincial Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was established on June 27th 1955 during Alberta's 50th Jubilee Year. The site was founded to protect the fossil beds. It became a UNESCO site on October 26th 1979 because of the importance of the fossil finds there.

It is comprised of sandstone, along with mudstone and siltstone deposits. The sediments originated from erosion to mountains on its western side. They were transported by river systems that flowed into the Bearpaw Sea. This sea formed part of the Western Interior Seaway.

The area is a rich source of fossil finds with plants, fish, turtles, crocodiles and dinosaur remains recovered. Preserved remains of soft tissues have also been found.
