We take great pride in our four amazing gardens, which are paid for by annual plot fees and built and maintained using volunteer labor.
Mack Park Garden
Mack Park is a gardener's garden. Located at the top of Mack Park, the in-ground plots here are huge. The experience of Mack Park's gardeners is obvious, as their crops are unique, beautiful, and clearly bountiful. Plots are $40 for the season.

With a combination of in-ground plots with raised beds, Palmer Cove is a lovely garden in the heart of Salem. Located on the water across from Palmer Cove Yacht Club, PC offers gorgeous views and a great community of gardeners. Plots are $40 for the season.
Splaine Park (newly renovated!)
