A lush public park occupies the core of the plaza to those looking for a place to play or kick back. Dotted with picnic tables, benches and a playground for children, the square features a medley of trees and free Wi-Fi throughout. Whether you are visiting Diablo Valley for a holiday, traveling for business or just passing through, Todos Santos Plaza is a must-visit.

Todos Santos Plaza, between Salvio Street, Willow Pass Road, Grant Street and Mount Diablo Street, is 2.5 acres downtown. City founder Don Salvio Pacheco dedicated The Plaza to the people of Concord more than 125 years ago.

In 1869, its pioneer founders Don Salvio Pacheco, Don Fernando Pacheco, and Don Francisco Galindo dedicated the plaza as the public square in one of the original 20 blocks laid out for the new town. The plaza continues to serve as a location for local festivals, concerts, carnivals and festivals. The renovation project for the period 1993-94 is the seventh major renovation of the square.

How to get there:

To Concord take the BART and hop off at Concord BART Station. The 8-minute walk to Todos Santos Plaza leads straight down Grant Street and is lined with blue signs pointing to the plaza. This is the best option for those who wish to avoid the parking hassle.

In downtown Concord, metered street parking is available although the quantity is small. Try to get into downtown early in the morning for the best luck parking on the street. Close to the plaza, there are two free parking structures – Salvio Street Garage and Grant Street Parking Garage.
