The Eula D. Marcks Garden at the League is open daily and can be used as an entrance to the League. The beauty of the garden, particularly during spring through early fall, draws members from both the professional an academic community. The Garden provides an enjoyable place to lunch and relax, and is often used for weddings and other special events.
Ornamental trees and a variety flowering shrubs surround the magnificent garden, and the entrance gate at the northeast corner of the courtyard is covered with Wisteria vine, trailing across the top and down the side of the entrance. Two magnificent sculptural pieces are located at the east side of the garden: The Water Nymph Fountain, at the southeast corner, was designed by Gerald Mast and executed by Clivia Calder in the 1930s. At the northeast corner of the gardenwall, near the gate, is a bronze sculpture entitled Rampant Unicorn.
Maintaining the courtyard is a year round activity that the Friends of the League Garden Committee, the League Operations Staff, and the University of Michigan Grounds Department have graciously taken on.
