Rare Reptilian Neighbors

You might find it hard to tell the difference between a crocodile and an alligator, it’s the different shape of their snouts in case you were wondering, but for everyone on the planet it’s not something they have to concern themselves with as crocodiles and alligators don’t coexist. Except for one place in the world, South Florida.

Puny Park

While it’s an interesting fact that the largest municipal park in the country is the 16,283 acre South Mountain Park in Phoenix, Arizona, what’s more interesting is the smallest one. When I say small, I mean the smallest park not just in the United States, but in the world. If you happen to find yourself at Naito Parkway in Downtown Portland you might spot Mill Ends Park. It’s a 2ft wide patch of green with a single tree in its center. Planted by Oregon Journal columnist Dick Fagan, he would describe it as “the only leprechaun colony west of Ireland” at the parks dedication on St. Patrick’s Day, 1976.
