The ‘Mill Ends’ Park Redefines Parks in a Petite Way

Taking petite to a whole other level, the world’s smallest park called ‘Mill Ends’ was built in Portland, Oregon. Measuring a whole two-feet, the park is barely enough for one person to stand in. However, each end of the park is a different enough environment for it to officially be designated as a park.

The park is maintained by Portland’s Parks And Recreation Department and has local admirers adorning it with miniaturized park equipment. Plastic fences, figurines and other minute toys have been left in ‘Mill Ends’ by caring citizens. Plastic soldiers have even been positioned in the park to defend it against ill-doers.

The park has an accompanying plaque describing its history. However, its accuracy is dubious as it states that the park is "presided over by Patrick O’Toole, head Leprechaun residing in the Park."
