This is a very fun site. We were walking along the river so we didn't have to go out of our way to see it. You do have to get to the middle of the street to get your picture, while you are crossing. But, it's certainly worth a tiny detour. Just one of Portland's unique spots! There is a... More

Grab your favorite meal from one of the nearby food carts and head over to the park. Get your picture taken eating your lunch in the worlds smallest park. Priceless!

Okay, this is a quirky thing. It's cute and if you're in Portland City Center, take a walk by it, just to say you've seen it. We nearly missed it! It's near the harbor at Taylor St. in a traffic center!

Yes, it is the World's smallest park according to the Guiness Book of World Records. I had read about it and wanted to see it. When I did see it, I couldn't help but laugh. It is a potted tiny tree in a cement pot with other tiny plants or flowers (according to the seasons) around it. Plus, it is... More

It is what it is. Funny story behind it. You will most likely be in the area doing something else so it wouldn't hurt to stop by but don't go out of your way to see this.

This is a funny side show attraction, and has a good story behind it, but I would not go out of my way to see this. This is one of those things that if you happen to be in the area, then stop by and snap a few shots and then tell your friends or family about it later.

I was sightseeing and just had to see the park. Took some great photos for my friends back east. What a great idea. Add it to your travel itinerary and you can visit the worlds smallest park.

Pretty easy to find and walk to from downtown Portland. Read the info online before going or you'll miss it.

Visiting downtown Portland, my best friend told me about this park; I couldn't believe it was as small as it was. It literally is just like crossing the street. The story behind it is interesting, it's on the street corner opposite of the seaside. If you're ever just walking around the boardwalk, it's definitely worth your time and the experience.... More

This park in one in a million. We rode by it on a Segway Tour - I'm glad the guide pointed it out, otherwise I would have missed it - it is that small. Check out the park online to see how special it is. I would definitely visit it again as the plantings change from season to sean.
