Jurassic Marsh is the ninth world in Plants vs. Zombies 2 which was released across the 4.2.1 and 4.3.1 updates on November 17, 2015 and December 15, 2015, its sneak-peek Piñata Parties for each part beginning on November 11, 2015 and December 9, 2015 respectively, and the soft release was released to Android on November 12, 2015 and December 10, 2015.
This world takes place during the Jurassic Era, long before the events of Frostbite Caves, where dinosaurs were still alive. Although the lawn is located in a marsh, water is not a relevant environment modifier in this world. However, water can be seen near the lawn.
All the plants obtained in this world except Perfume-shroom are "primal" versions of the Player's House plants. The premium plant released alongside Part 1 of Jurassic Marsh is Grapeshot, and the one released alongside Part 2 is Cold Snapdragon.
- Main article: Dinosaur
Dinosaurs are the gimmick and environmental modifier of this world. They do not act like typical zombies, and are not classified as such, since there is no such interaction between the dinosaurs and plants (except between Perfume-shroom). They however, do interact with zombies of any type that passes by them. The dinosaurs are the Raptor, Stegosaurus, Pterodactyl, T. Rex, and Ankylosaurus.

Order of events
The player requires a World Key which is obtainable after beating Ancient Egypt - Day 8 which then gain access to Jurassic Marsh. When the player beats Day 15, they obtain a small rock Penny suspects as the meteorite that destroys the dinosaurs. After defeating the waves of Jurassic Gargantuar the player obtain a World Key. On Day 32, Dr. Zomboss stated that he is irritated by the player's interference and told them to wait for the "enormous rock" he scheduled to get rid of them. Once the player defeats the Zombot Dinotronic Mechasaur, Penny detected an incoming meteor, and Crazy Dave farewell his goodbye to the dinosaurs, stating they'll be birdies in no time. Dr. Zomboss then decides that he doesn't have other choice, but to enact his project paradox, and flees.
Jurassic Marsh is an extremely hard world, even though it does not contain any extremely hard levels. Instead, it contains a whopping twenty two somewhat hard-hard days, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 31, and 32, and seven very hard days, 12, 16, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30. It is harder than the previous world, Neon Mixtape Tour, but is much easier than Big Wave Beach.

However, the player cannot choose plants that do not cost sun (except Hot Potato and Stallia), sun-producing plants and some other certain plants (However, this rarely happens). After choosing, the player will be able to plant plants with instant recharge to set up his or her defense before starting the battle.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Jurassic Marsh.
- Jurassic Marsh is currently the farthest back in time the player goes in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- The map after Day 16 appears to be the landscape changed by the meteor impact due to the absence of grass coupled with dead flora.
- The lawn of Jurassic Marsh contains the skeleton of a dinosaur, similar to the one on the unsodded Player's House lawn.
- A world similar to this world first appeared in Plants vs. Zombies: Timepocalypse, albeit with no name.
- The zombies' foreheads have the same Neanderthal appearance as the Frostbite Caves zombies' foreheads.
- In the Chinese version, this world has four imp variants, being the most of all worlds. The three additional ones are the only Chinese exclusive zombies of this world.
- The art used in Jurassic Marsh bears a strong resemblance to scenery from the cartoon show The Flintstones.
- Its former name (Mesozoic Marsh) in French, is "Mésozoïque Park," which is a reference to the Jurassic Park franchise.
- The Day 15 note appears to be one of the map assets from Far Future, but being green.
- Penny speculated that the asteroid was supposed to be 'Seattle-sized', implying her belief that the meteor was supposed to destroy the dinosaurs, but shrunk. Seattle is also a reference to that the Popcap company is in Seattle.
- However, by Day 32, after defeating Zomboss, Penny says "I detect an incoming meteor, User Dave. I advise immediate egress from this time zone" to which Crazy Dave replies "Bye-bye, dinos! You'll be birdies in no time." implying that the K-T extinction event, contrary to Penny's earlier speculation, was not prevented after all.
- Jurassic Marsh, Lost City, Frostbite Caves, and Modern Day are the only worlds not to introduce plants from the first Plants vs. Zombies game.
- The two premium plants released during Jurassic Marsh, Grapeshot and Cold Snapdragon, are both upgrades of pre-existing plants. Specifically, Snapdragon and Cherry Bomb.
- Coincidentally, both plants are obtained in Pirate Seas.
- Jurassic Marsh is the second world with animated lawn mowers, the first being Frostbite Caves.
- Despite the fact that humans did not exist during the time of this world, zombies—which are assumed to be "undead" humans—are of course featured in this world. This fact is referenced in Jurassic Gargantuar's Almanac entry.
- Part of the Choose Your Seeds music, respectively at the beginning has a close resemblance to the first game's main menu music. This is shared with Modern Day's version too.
- Ultimate Battle and Brainiac Maniac have the slight touch of Lost City and Frostbite Caves with remixing using the natural instruments, aborigin-styled harmonics, and Hawaiian and Arabian instruments.
- Jurassic Marsh has no exclusive Brain Buster, similar to Frostbite Caves and Neon Mixtape Tour.
- Usually, Brainiac Maniac is used on Brain Busters levels. In Jurassic Marsh, aside from Save Our Seeds, it is used on some levels with given criteria to pass (i.e. preventing zombies from trampling flowers.)
- Jurassic Marsh, Neon Mixtape Tour, and Wild West are the only worlds that do not have surprise attacks.
- The lawn appears to be higher above ground than the scenery like the house, zombie base, background marsh, but the zombies do not appear to gain ground when entering the lawn/eating the brains.
- It is the first world since Dark Ages to not introduce any female zombies.
- All of the plants obtained in this world start with the letter P. This is because the word "Primal" is added for four of them and the other is Perfume-shroom.
- All of the zombies in this world except Zombot Dinotronic Mechasaur start with the word "Jurassic".
- Jurassic Zombie and Jurassic Flag Zombie are the only zombies in this world with the word "Zombie" in their name.
- The achievements for Part 2 were accidentally leaked on Google Play Games with the official release of the Jurassic Marsh Part 1 update. Those leaked the designs of the Primal Potato Mine and T. Rex.
- One of the Part 2 advertisements shows the Ankylosaurus and texts that says; "Objects in game may be larger than they appear!" which is a reference from the Jurassic Park franchise.
- It is the only world to have one of its icons not be themed with the world. The part 2 icon was for the Feastivus event.
- The winning music for Jurassic Marsh sounds similar to Wild West's winning music.
- Jurassic Marsh, Ancient Egypt, Dark Ages, and Modern Day are the only worlds to introduce sun-producing plants.
- Lost City is debatable, as Gold Leaf produces sun, but not on its own.
- Of these aforementioned worlds, only Ancient Egypt and Jurassic Marsh introduce variations of Sunflower.
- The Part 2 preview shows a pterodactyl carrying a Jurassic Imp. This does not happen in-game as pterodactyls can only carry Jurassic Zombies, its variants and Jurassic Bullies.
- Before the 5.3.1 version, it used to be the tenth world on the world map order.
- In the Android version of the game, the Wave 2B music is missing from the game entirely. This also includes the start of the Final Wave for Modern Day, Lost City, and Jurassic Marsh.
- This is the only world that gives gems instead of piñatas after completing the repeatable Travel Log quests.
