EST: Siinsel krundil asus 19. sajandi esimestel kümnenditel ülikooli humanitaarteaduste professori, raamatukogu ja kunstimuuseumi direktori Johann Karl Simon Morgensterni aed. Aias kasvasid lisaks uhketele leht- ja okaspuudele ka viljapuud ning marjapõõsad, aga samuti aedmaasikad ja sparglid. Mõni aasta enne oma surma, 1848. aastal kinkis Morgenstern oma aia piduliku žestiga ülikoolile. Ülikool rajas siia kohe tudengite jaoks ajaveetmiskoha koos veeremänguraja ja võimlemisväljakuga. 1857. aastal ehitati veel väike hoone spordiinventari ladustamiseks ja kunstnik Louis Höflingeri näpunäidete järgi püstitati platsile võimlemisriistad. 1863. aastal peeti siin Balti kubermangude esimene võimlemispidu.

ENG: The garden belonging to Johann Karl Simon Morgenstern, professor of humanities, and the director of the university’s library and art museum, was located on this plot in the first decades of the 19th century. There were not only majestic deciduous and coniferous trees in the garden but also fruit trees and berry bushes, as well as strawberries and asparagus. A few years before his death, in 1848, Morgenstern ceremoniously gave his garden to the university. The university set up a recreation place for students here, with an outdoor bowling lane and gymnastics ground. In 1857, a small storage structure was built for sports equipment, and gymnastics facilities were erected on the grounds according to the instructions of artist Louis Höflinger. In 1863, the first gymnastics festival in the Baltic provinces was held here.
