When doing a "What to see in Portland" search, I saw Mill Ends. As a fan of Parks and Recreation, I HAD to see the actual World's Smallest Park. It is right by the waterfront, but in the middle of a crosswalk. I spent too...More

It's the worlds smallest park so for that matter it's worth seeing for the pure novelty of it. If you see the pictures posted than it is exactly what it looks like. I'm sure not many of your friends can say they've seen the worlds...More

Took the time to see the "World's Smallest Park" while visiting Portland and I must say it's easy to miss if you're looking for it. Tucked between a somewhat busy street in the medium stands the World's smallest park. It has a placard located on...More
