Mill Ends Park

In the middle of Portland, Oregon there is a small oasis of weirdness called Mill Ends Park. According to Wikipedia, Mill Ends Park:

is a small park that was created on St. Patrick's Day, 1948, to be a colony for leprechauns and a location for snail races. It is the smallest park in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records, which first granted it this recognition in 1971. The park is a circle 2 ft (0.61 m) across, with a total area of 452 sq in (0.292 m2), in a traffic median which in 1948 was intended to be the site for a light pole.

I've never been to Portland, but if I ever make it up there, I'll make a point to visit this park.

Would I need a park pass to visit?

Wait a minute. It's not handicapped accessible.

I'm suing under ADA laws.

This is just another case of native american( sprite)s being displaced for the more glamourous European variety. Manifest destiny for magical pixies.

I'm going to plant a bonsai tree over a manhole cover and call it WU Park. It'll be for MW's midgets. Maybe put in a wheelchair ramp made from popsicle sticks. Have a tiny bonfire from toothpicks and roast mini marshmellows. Think I could get it listed in Guinness?
