The Cleveland Cultural Gardens are a collection of public gardens located in Rockefeller Park in Cleveland, Ohio. The gardens are situated along East Boulevard & Martin Luther King Jr. Drive within the 276 acre of wooded parkland on the city's East Side. In total, there are 31 distinct gardens, each commemorating a different ethnic group whose immigrants have contributed to the heritage of the United States over the centuries, as well as Cleveland.
The Cleveland Cultural Gardens (CCGF) announced on November 20, 2012 the acceptance of the American Lebanese Community Council as a sponsoring Organization within the CCGF toward working and developing of the Lebanese Cultural Garden.

Ahlaan. It is one word to guide one simple concept, the tradition of the Lebanese to welcome. It goes back centuries as Lebanon welcomed the east to the west and the west to the east and remains a theme today. Simple and modern, the new garden will welcome visitors with an allure to all those passing by via car, bicycle, or on foot. It is through the atmosphere of the garden that visitors will begin to understand a bit of the Lebanese culture and leave wanting to learn more.
Transitional passageway. Welcoming, with the potential for story telling or donor recognition.
The experience across the garden takes you from the sea –Phoenicians-to the woodland –tree- to the mountains
