Memorial Garden is a peaceful spot where you can quietly explore our area’s flora and fauna, and even learn a bit of local history.
 
Memorial Garden is tucked away in downtown Concord. The beautiful three-acre garden is owned by First Presbyterian Church and dates back to 1804. Many of the county’s ancestors have their final resting place here.
 
Spring flower beds are full of pansies, hyacinths, daffodils, azaleas and over 14,000 tulips. In summer, brilliant annuals shine throughout. Year-round the garden boasts enormous oaks, magnolias, dogwoods, roses and twisted crepe myrtles.
 
The garden provides an inspiring visual retreat year-round. Admission is free. Hours of operation are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 until 5:30 p.m.
 
For more information on Memorial Garden, located at 36 Spring Street in downtown Concord, call 704-786-6106 or visit firstpresconcord.org.
