Mill Ends the smallest park in the world

Mill Ends the smallest park in the world

A seemingly ordinary piece of earth decorated with vegetation. In fact, a house for a dwarf and the smallest park in the world. In this case, the passage through the park takes on a new meaning.
In 1946, Dick Fagan returned from World War II to continue his journalistic career in the Oregon Journal. His office was located on the second floor overlooking a street called Naito Parkway (Portland, Oregon). One time he looked out the window, he saw not only the stormy traffic in the street, but also a hole in the middle of it, where the lighthouse should be located. As time passed, the city authorities did nothing about it, and the hole was overgrown with weeds. The journalist decided to take matters into his own hands and use the unused space by planting flowers there. He called this place the same as the column in which he wrote – Mill Ends. Quite often he described various events that took place there.
