It's just a few extra steps off Waterfront Park so why not.?. It's cute and slightly interesting. A walking guided tour group of about 30 people swarmed us as we were reading up on the story behind the park. To the folks of Portland, this little park is obviously a big deal. Portland also boasts the largest city park --... More

This is the tiniest park! I am not going to lie.. I walked by it the first time not realizing that it is so very tiny. So small in fact that I was not able to even "stand" in the park and take a picture. Cute. Very Portland.

I love this little hidden treasure in Portland. According to Guiness it is the worlds smallest city park. Legend has it that a leprechaun gave this park to a journalist.

This stop would have been a thorough waste of time had it not been 2 minutes out of our way. The tree was dead, or at least "dormant". Perhaps we just aren't quite cool enough to see the allure. Did a drive by and kept on going...

Why is this famous. I do not understand. It's not completely out of the way to go check this out, but honestly why would you.

I took my sister here and it was totally fun. A small park in the middle of Portland, near the waterfront and not far from the farmers market.

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.
