The Memorial Garden

Remember those who have gone before us.

The Forever in Our Hearts Memorial Garden at Tynecastle Park, offers a peaceful, contemplative space in which to remember those who have passed on.  Loved ones are honoured with personalised, engraved, stainless steel hearts that adorn the walls of the garden. Enter through the beautifully crafted steel gates and relax in this place of solitude. 

The centrepiece of this tranquil space is a striking bronze and steel sculpture of the club’s iconic crest. Raised from its middle is a bronze football - a touchstone for generations of Hearts fans.

A small room for quiet reflection is available year round, which displays an ornate stained glass window, originally made for and presented to Hearts legend John Robertson. Overlooking the Garden is the cast bronze 1914 Memorial Trust statue, depicting a soldier from the 16th Royal Scots Battalion. Please note this room will not be available during restricted Saturday openings.
