The Event Lawn serves as the main entrance to the Gardens and a gathering space. It is one of the primary outdoor event venues for the Agriculture and Life Sciences Complex and the Gardens. The Event Lawn currently exists as a spacious, green oasis for students and faculty for group exercises, picnic lunches, studying and setting up the occasional hammock. As part of the Gardens project, the event lawn has been preserved and improved. It now includes additional landscaping and flower beds on the perimeter, as well as a paved site for food trucks and caterers.
Events may include the annual College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Tailgate, weddings, receptions, banquets, and much more. The space is lined and scattered with statuesque post oaks that provide plenty of shade. During events, tents can be set up on the lawn to create additional sheltered areas.
