About North Park
North Park University — located appropriately in the North Park neighborhood — vaunts the Swedish blue and gold for its school colors and, of course, goes by the Vikings. The University's ode to Swede culture is an embodiment of the neighborhood in general. Tre Kronor, the neighborhood's signature restaurant, is a Swedish diner that serves up some of the best quiche in town. Foster Avenue is decorated with authentic Swedish gift shops. And if you're looking for a bottle of glogg, it's never hard to find.
Besides its small town feel and Swedish influence, North Park also has an expansive green space at Peterson Park and the North Park Village Nature Center. The area also boasts the historical Bohemian National Cemetery and, to demonstrate its range, Brazilian-style desserts at Beijo de Chocolat.
