Siwkowo [ɕifˈkɔvɔ] (German: Heinrichshof)[1] is a settlement in the administrative district of Gmina Stargard Szczeciński, within Stargard County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-western Poland.[2]

Before 1945 the village was part of Germany and known as Heinrichshof. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
