Leprechaun park in Portland 

My friend, Liz Donovan, mentioned this in a recent article. Mills End Park located in Portland Oregon, is 452 square inches in size. Yes, inches. It boasts a ferris wheel along with a swimming pool and is apparently used by leprechauns. History has it that in 1946 Dick Fegan, recently returned from the war and back to his journalist job with the Oregon Journal, noticed an empty hole destined for a light pole. The pole never arrived, so Dick created a little leprechaun park. He also spoke of sightings of a Patrick O'Toole, the head leprechaun. Dick passed away in 1969 but the story lives on as does the park. It's an enchanting and enjoyable tale.

Hi Blogger,
Leprechaun park in Portland is truly a nice piece of work!
While looking for more information about gardening gift,
I see so much rubbish, that I am glad to find a blog like yours.
My interest goes out to gardening gift related information,
but Leprechaun park in Portland is a real inspiration for me.
