About Swede Hollow Park

The location of a bustling immigrant community up until the late 1950s, Swede Hollow Park is enjoyed by many residents looking for a green escape in an urban setting. The park's valleys create a distinct feeling of wilderness in conjunction with a bisecting stream that lightly fills the impressive silence and serenity afforded by the environment.


The Swede Hollow parking lot may be closed during the winter.
