Memorial Park Garden

In the spring of 2017 a new allotment garden will open in Memorial Park. The garden will have 56 standard plots and 7 accessible raised planter beds. Accessible planter tables remove physical barriers and provide an opportunity for people of all abilities to participate. All planter tables and standard plots are currently rented for the 2017 season. For more information on Memorial Park's development and amenities, visit the Memorial Park page.

The 2017 rental fee is $83.43 per plot or planter (tax included).
