Back to the future: Dinosaur statues stomp into Gardens by the Bay

SINGAPORE: Gardens by the Bay’s Supertree Grove is home to 11 life-sized dinosaur sculptures from now till Apr 2. 

The tallest of them all is a blue Brachiosaurus towering over the others at 16 metres in height. Other sculptures include a 7 metre-tall Tyrannosaurus Rex nicknamed Rexy, as well as a bright yellow Triceratops known as Tricey.

The sculptures have been installed as part of the Children’s Festival, which kicks off on Mar 10. Gardens by the Bay said the team behind the project took two months to design and produce them.
