Bixby Knolls National Park

This is a small corner lot that the local business association spruced up and decorated with kitschy features reminiscent of our National Parks. A National Park sign and Park map are included in its signage.

Bixby Knolls National Park

On an unused piece of ground (0.05 acre), someone created a mini National Park, with trees, animals, a stream, and signage exactly like at other national parks.

[Stewart Laidlaw, 04/07/2022]

According to its official sign, Bixby Knolls National Park wildlife includes gnomes, snipes, jackalopes, fairies, elephant shrews, and a tiny subspecies of Bigfoot.
