AAA Editor Notes

Kahlil Gibran Memorial Garden is at 3100 Massachusetts Ave. N.W. between 30th and 34th sts., adjacent to Rock Creek Park and opposite the British Embassy. Set in the midst of a wooded ravine known as Woodland-Normanstone Terrace Park, this garden is dedicated to early 20th-century Lebanese-American philosopher Kahlil Gibran. Follow the stone walkway across a footbridge that leads to a star-shaped fountain. Surrounding the fountain, which is decorated with a bust of the poet, are stone benches engraved with such mystical Gibran quotations as “freedom without thought is confusion.” Just north of the garden is a trailhead that leads to trails in Rock Creek Park.
