Portland has both the world's biggest park within city limits and the smallest park within city limits. This one is the smallest. So cute and funny!

This tiny park is a bit of Portland whimsy and is just for fun. Enjoy, along with the tiny horses tied up along curbsides and fresh donuts.

This is an attractive, small park in Portland, OR, my home town. It's always very fun to visit with out of town guests. After your visit, you can walk along seawall right next to the park. Be careful and don't disturb small people living in the park.

The smallest municipal park in the world just has to bring a smile to your face. Unfortunately, you can't spend much time there, with the traffic on Naito Parkway whizzing by.

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.
