King Arthur's Round Table - Literary Park
This curious place, designed to inspire, is on the north side of town, adjacent to University of Kentucky Community College. Created in 1965, Round Table Literary Park is a nicely shaded strip of woodland interspersed with monuments drawn from the world of Literature. No monkey bars here.
There's King Arthur's Round Table, natch -- with stone seating for 24. But you'll also discover a Sword in the Stone for the obvious photo op (though it's jammed back in the hedges). A Greek/Roman amphitheater and the Delphian Tholos Temple provide venues for annual literary events, quiet contemplation, or a place to walk the dog.
We were in town to seek out Psychic Edgar Cayce's bible and grave, so the park was a nice surprise.
