The World’s Smallest Park Is Hiding Right Here In Portland And You Need To Visit

Portland’s notoriety as an eccentric place has only grown in recent years with the popularity of “Portlandia.” However, Portland was way ahead of the curve on this one, transforming a regular old crosswalk into a tiny park that gained fame back in 1971 when the Guinness Book of World Records named it as the smallest park in the world. Measuring in at 2 feet across and just 452 square inches, this little park is easy to pass by without even realizing its fame.
