Funny quick little stop.

My kids found this little park endearing. It had a tiny "Mill End Park" sign and a few little painted mushrooms. It's in the middle of a busy street so use caution. Just took a... read more

This little leprechaun colony in the middle of Naito Parkway is one of my favorite little quirks about Portland. I'm thankful that the city has kept it and enjoyed it for so many years. Yes, it's tiny and you can easily walk right past it without even realizing the gold at your feet. You won't really spend any time laying... More

Saw This on the walking tour, but really, a park. A good bit of fun but we all know it's not really a park. Very funny story comes worth it so worth a visit, it won't take long. But Portland, keep this record.

Mills End Park is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Last visit had me a little melancholy, as the tree was brown due to lack of water. Someone please give it a drink. I always wave as I pass.

So, you walk right past it and then realise. Yes, you could say, whats the big deal? Its the small things that count. Stuff like this makes a city, makes a culture, makes a memory. The fact that its so small simple, someone did it and we can visit it is just amazing to me. Im more impressed that someone... More

It's got to be the tiniest park in the world: just one rose bush in the City of Roses. It's got history--how it survived many street re-routings and construction. Typical Portland. You can't visit and not have your photo taken in the Park (or next to it!), that would like going to India and not seeing the Taj Mahal.

My kids found this little park endearing. It had a tiny "Mill End Park" sign and a few little painted mushrooms. It's in the middle of a busy street so use caution. Just took a few minutes to see it, snap a pic and read the bronzed sign explaining it on the side opposite the river.

We walked by this little park about four times before we took the free Portlandia Tour and found out there was a sign on the building sidewalk that talks about its history. I understand there has been challenges to it being the smallest and a park - I hope Portland keeps the record.

It's in the middle of the street. I didn't ponder over it to much, snapped a quick photo due to the fact I didn't want to be standing in the middle of the road when pondering over it with traffic whizzing by.

As we were about to enter the Rose Parade Festival, one member of our group, from Portland, pointed out the Mill Ends Park. We thought he was joking that this was an actual park, but then we read the plaque explaining it, it's for real....this tiny, round, thing in the middle of this busy street, is a real, on the...

I loved that they had a crane deliver a miniature Ferris wheel for the tiniest park. In 2006 the whole park was relocated in a planter due to construction. lol
