Located near a wooded area and the Onwood Memorial Garden and Peace Pole the pavilion is used for relaxation, picnics, classes in warm weather, weddings and receptions. It was a gift of the Friends of IPFW in 1992 and was built by students under the direction of professor Matthew Kubik who won a citation for amenity design from the Fort Wayne chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The original name was the Aquarius Park Pavilion. It was conceived by Chancellor Joanne B. Lantz as a place for students to gather informally.
