Mill Ends Park in Portland, the United States, is only two feet in diameter and is really just a flower pot, but don’t say that aloud, especially in front of Portlandians. Since the last 40-odd years, the locals have been celebrating this tiny hole of earth as the world’s smallest park, and they have a certificate from the Guinness Book of Records to prove.

The site that would become the Mill Ends Park was originally scheduled for a light pole. When the pole failed to appear and weeds sprouted in the opening, Dick Fagan, a columnist for the Oregon Journal, decided to take matters into his own hands and planted flowers in the hole. Fagan's office in the Journal building overlooked the median in the middle of the busy thoroughfare that ran in front of the building.
