The Memorial Garden, located at the lower east end of Tring's High street, was formed from a small section of Lord Rothschild’s 300-acre Tring Park.
In the 1950s, the land was turned into a memorial garden for those who had lost their lives in the Second World War. Plaques commemorating the fallen are mounted on the brick gate piers, which are topped with an iron arch to form a memorial gateway. The Memorial Garden underwent improvement works in 2011, including extensive tree work, pond improvements, plus the inclusion of a fountain and a variety of flowers and has held Green Flag status since 2012. Named as one of Hertfordshire’s secret gardens, the garden features a giant redwood, well-stocked fishpond with ornamental fountain, beautiful planted borders and a spring bulb display. The site now provides a green area in a built-up environment and is used for informal recreation, dog walking and as an area for remembrance.
