Worlds Smallest Park 2

Mill Ends Park is only two feet in diameter, made up of just a small patch of grass, a few plants and the one tree. It's not only Portland's smallest park, but it's also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's smallest park.

Officials with Portland Parks and Recreation said it appeared that someone yanked out the lone tree and took it. There was no word on any possible suspects in the case.

On Wednesday, park officials made repairs. They planted a small Douglas Fir sapling, at a cost of just $3.25.  The park is located at the intersection of Southwest Naito Parkway and Taylor Street, near the Willamette River.

The pine has been replaced with a Douglas Fir. No word on if a shrubbery will be added.

I may go looking for clews in the morning.

As you can see from a cursory search, the tree seems to rotate often.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
