Between college and town lies a 13-acre, wooded green space that serves as a gathering place for picnics, bonfires, and festivals of all kinds. Erected in 1987 in Tappan Square, it also is the site of many small gatherings and concerts for both College students and members of the Oberlin community. Most performances are free, particularly in the summer. The pavilion's architecture evokes the image of a carnival cart from India. Julian S. Smith's design was chosen from among 50 entries.
