Holly Skogen Park
Holly Skogen Park, also known as the Troll Park by local children has its entrance near the intersection of West 6th Street and Holly Ridge Drive near the west outskirts of Starbuck, MN.
It is owned and maintained by Arne Pederson who began its development in 1986. This two acre park is open to the public and attracts many groups of visitors each year. Visitors love to walk along the stone-lined trails which wind their way through a thick growth of trees and brush. Part of the trail follows a small stream, fed by springs near the center of the park. Seven bridges, one of which is a covered bridge, span the stream. A dam in the stream produces a nice waterfall which also turns a water wheel for a minature flour mill.
A number of trolls and gnomes have taken up residence in this park and are pleased to welcome you! They are happy in this unique place where there are many beautiful rocks and flowers, a gazebo, a post office, a replica of a Norwegian Stav Church, some old horse machinery, and some subtle Norwegian humor! Adult visitors are welcome to stroll through this park on their own, but children must be supervised.
