Portland is home to Mill Ends Park, the smallest park in the world. Only two feet across it is located downtown in the middle of a crosswalk on Front Avenue at Taylor Street. Conversely, the city is also home to Forest Park, nearly 5,000 acres in size and the largest urban park in the USA.
The Oregon Historical Society is located at 1200 SW Park Avenue, between Madison and Jefferson Streets in downtown Portland. The museum readily accessible by public transportation. The Pioneer Square MAX station is only four blocks north of the Historical Society. Most Tri-Met buses stop at the Transit Mall downtown along SW 5th or 6th streets, just two or three blocks away. The Portland Streetcar stops at SW 11th and Jefferson (Northbound) or SW 10th at the Portland Art Museum, two blocks east of the Oregon Historical Society.
Portland International Airport is located on the south side of the Columbia River twelve miles by highway northeast of downtown Portland. Ahilirport code, PDX.

TriMet’s MAX Light Rail System connects Portland, Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro and the Portland Airport. Trains run every 5-15 minutes roughly between 4:30am and midnight. MAX Light Rail uses only electricity, and even supplies some of its own power through braking (like hybrid cars). With MAX factored in, TriMet is more than 10 times as fuel-efficient per passenger as the average car. Experience a big part of why Portland is consider one of the country’s most sustainable cities.
