This One’s For The Ladies! Chapman Square, Portland

“Chapman Square, originally designed for the exclusive use of women and children, features all female gingko trees. Lownsdale Square was to be the ‘gentlemen’s gathering place.’ Today the Plaza Blocks are still a busy gathering place, although men and women can now safely coexist in either of them.” –Portland Parks & Rec Department

Isn’t that awesome? It’d be even more awesome if they still enforced this as being a female only square with Lownsdale being only for guys. Seems like a good way for the city to make some money off of ticketing tourists, plus it would be hilarious!
