A 30 foot triceratops and one of the city’s most charismatic pieces of sculpture - the Peartree Bridge dinosaur requires a new look.

Inter-Action MK, Woughton Community Council and The Parks Trust are asking people to release their creativity and put forward their designs for the dinosaur’s new makeover. Last painted in 2009 the dazzlingly gold dinosaur requires a new lick of paint and local residents are being encouraged to come forward with their designs.

There will be an exhibition of the shortlisted designs and residents of Milton Keynes will be invited to vote for their favourite. The winning design will be painted on the dinosaur.

To inspire budding dinosaur designers a number of dinosaur-related events will be held in the Easter holidays, including:
