Scandinavian Heritage Park is a park located in the Upper Brooklyn neighborhood of Minot, North Dakota. Scandinavian Heritage Park features remembrances and replicas from each of the Scandinavian countries: Sweden, Norway and Denmark, as well as Finland and Iceland. [1]

The park was established during 1988 to celebrate and preserve Scandinavian heritage. The first building was dedicated October 9, 1990. [2]

It is believed to be the only park in the world representing all five Nordic countries. The park is supported by the Scandinavian Heritage Association and Norsk Høstfest, both of which have offices at the park. [3] The park is home to the annual Integrity Jazz Festival held in June.[4]
