Now, this amazed me. Even though I write about Beaverton, Oregon, and Beaverton, Oregon, Real Estate, this park is actually in Portland. It amazed me so much when I heard about it I had to see it for myself.
As you know, my family is always on the lookout for parks to take the kids so we can tell other families about them. Well, when we came across Mill Ends Park on the list we knew it wouldn’t be much fun for the kids, but when it was named the smallest park in the world at only 452 square inches, we knew had to go to it and take a picture. Yes, 1 picture. Can you really take more than one if the park is only 452 square inches? Ok, I guess I could have walked to the other side of the park and taken a picture, but that seemed like overkill.
We asked the kids if they wanted to get out and play, but only one said yes. So, as you can see in the picture of the world’s smallest park, I think my littlest was a little disappointed in the promise of going to a park and getting this. Mill Ends Park in Portland, Oregon is a park, but by who's standards, and I’m still left wondering who spent the money on this one? When we got there, we did actually get some answers though. We got the answers from a sign that I think may actually be bigger than the park.
OK, heck, I’ll do my review anyway. Not a good park for children, there is no playground equipment, no bathrooms, and even not great for parents as there is no place for them to sit and watch their kids play. Heck, if you leave the park, you are more than likely going to get run over by a car on busy Naito Parkway. So, if you are looking for a park to take your kids, avoid this one! (LOL)
