I mean, it's the world's smallest park so you don't need a ton of time to check it out but it's fun to say you've been there! Be sure to read the little historical sign nearby for some context. It's right in the middle of...More

This claims to be the smallest park in the world and it is a must see just to say you've been there and seen it. Almost reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. Just awesome!

Read the history and then find this park and see it for yourself so you can appreciate the story behind it. I thought it was too cute! I didn’t see any leprechauns but who knows....they could have been hiding out.

We visited this park as part of our "Secrets Of Portlandia Free Walking Tour." While it isn't much to look at, and is in the middle of a busy road, it's the story that goes with it that makes it interesting. We have told numerous...More

You've got to visit the world's smallest park! It's not terribly exciting and was very puny to be honest, but hey, I did it! I can say I've been to the world's smallest park.

There was another couple seeking out this park at the same time we did. It is tiny, but has such a cute origin story that it's so funny worthwhile to stop on by.

Honestly, if your'e staying downtown or walking the Tom McCall waterfront park, just cruise on by and snap a photo. The story behind it is hilarious, and it literally takes 5 seconds to say you have visited "The World's Smallest Park."

What you see is what you get, a tiny park, about the size of a coffee table, but what a hoot, and what a great photo op! Check it off your bucket list. "See the world's smallest city park?" Check! Not worth it's own trip,...More

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

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
