The Kahlil Gibran Memorial Garden is a public garden located at 3100 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C., "within a wooded ravine known as Woodland-Normanstone Park". At its center are a bronze sculpture of the Lebanese-American writer, poet and visual artist Kahlil Gibran by Gordon Kray and a star-shaped fountain surrounded by limestone benches engraved with multiple quotes of Gibran.

Text on monument: Kahlil Gibran's legacy is the powerful simplicity of his words which continue to inspire those who long for peace, search for love, and strive for justice.
