What makes this site is the history and stories behind it. And you're not going to get this unless you go on a tour, such as the "Secrets Of Portlandia Free Walking Tour." The smell of a homeless person close by really added to the...More

It really is the smallest park. In the middle of a crosswalk so do not linger long. Just another awesome weird thing you must do when in Portland.

We were in Portland for a few hours and Pinterest had a list of items to do in Portland in a small amount of time. Mill Ends Park was one of them. It is a tiny median on the busy street. My boys ran to...More

You might miss it if you aren't paying attention. It is cute and apparently it gets changed out and kept up. Kind of cute and funny in the middle of the street. I have to check the Guinness book of world records to see if...More

This tiny park is cute idea but people were walking out into moving traffic to take picture with it. Stuff like this is fun but it's in a dangerous area so be careful.

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

To figure out this was the park. Knew it was small, this is so easy to miss. Kind of the size of a planter. A really nice planter. There is another park just big enough for a tree and a bench.....somewhere.
