Named after the Cleveland poet and former Plain Dealer reporter Hart Crane (learn more courtesy of the Poetry Foundation or from Anne Trubek’s “Hart Crane in Cleveland” courtesy of Belt Magazine). In honor and recognition of his work, the park is now part of the Ohio Literary Trail.
Hart Crane Park features a memorial designed by artist Gene Kangas. For more on the Hart Crane Memorial sculpture, check out Ohio Outdoor Sculpture’s write up.
