Definition of a Miniature Park

Below you will find the definition of a Miniature Park as listed on Wikipedia, including a long list of Miniature Parks around the world.

A miniature park is an open space that displays miniature buildings and models, and is usually open to the public.

Miniature parks may contain one model of a single city or town, often called a miniature city or model village, or it can contain a number of different sets of models.

They have been developed as recreational and tourist attractions, with possible roots in Japanese miniature gardens.

 

Most examples are located in landscaped outdoor spaces, but the definition has widened in recent years to encompass large scale miniature landscapes indoors.
