In the midst of the wooded ravine known as Normanstone Park, the Kahlil Gibran garden memorializes the arch-deity of soupy spiritual poetry. Its centerpieces are a moody bust of the Lebanese mystic and a star-shaped fountain surrounded by flowers, hedges and limestone benches engraved with various Gibranisms: ‘We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting.’ From a path just north of the garden, you can hop onto trails that link to Rock Creek and Glover Archbold Parks.
