After the demolition of A (Arts) Building in 1962, the block bounded by Linden Street, Monroe Avenue, Mulberry Street, and Hitchcock Court was turned into an outdoor recreation facility, with three basketball courts, a volleyball court, and a grass football practice field. The fields and courts weren't lighted, so they could only be used during the day.
Galvin Terrace Sport and Recreation Complex was constructed in the late 1970s to upgrade this recreational facility. Galvin Terrace had six tennis courts, two combination basketball/volleyball courts, four handball/racketball courts, and recreational and lounging space. It was used for intramural sports but also served as the home of the University's tennis team. The recreational complex was later demolished to make room for the Weinberg Memorial Library. A small garden outside the Library is now known as Galvin Terrace.
