Known by its large banyan trees, originally part of the Cascading Garden, the square was named after the renowned Lebanese artist Omar Onsi.

A bronze statue by Nabil Helou (Lebanon) depicts the artist, flanked by two small gazelles and Agave plants, a scene frequently encountered in his paintings.
