Portland’s Mill Ends Park, The Smallest Park in the World

Mark Ross of the Parks and Recreation Department of Portland, Oregon discusses Mill End Park—the smallest park in the world— in this short video by the Humanwire series on >Rocketboom. The 2-foot diameter park was founded in 1948 by local journalist Dick Fagan. In recent years it hosted a miniature Occupy protest complete with plastic police officers and tiny protest signs.
