Constitution Gardens are on a small island in the middle of a pond between the World War II Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial. There are stones arranged in a semi-circle identifying each of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and their occupations/state, with an engraving of their signatures (look for John Hancock's famous scrawl!). It's very small and will... More

One of the little known memorials on the mall, celebrating all the signers of the Constitution. Worth stopping by for a quick peak to see all the signatures immortalized in stone.

Constitution Gardens is a memorial to the signers of the US Constitution and serves as a quiet stop on the north side of the reflecting pool between the busy WWII Memorial and the Vietnam/Lincoln Memorial areas.

The Gardens are dedicated to all the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The memorial is small, located on the Tidal Basin. It contains all the signatures of the signers. Not many flowers when I was there, but still lovely location.

This is a neat little island with a monument to the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Each signature from the Declaration is reproduced in stone. My son enjoyed all the ducks and geese on the pond.

Constitution Gardens is 50 acre park that is located inside the National Mall. It's parallel to the Reflecting Pool and located north between the WWII memorial and Lincoln memorial. If you want to get away from the huge crowds at the other more popular memorials this is the spot for you. There were people relaxing in the sun, having picnics,... More

I loved stumbling upon this little oasis near the Mall. It has a little pond with a footbridge and plaques on rocks with the names and signatures of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. If you get the pond at the right angle, you can see the reflection of the Washington Monument- and it's much less crowded than the... More

This isn't up to the same level as the other monuments/memorials but I really enjoyed Constitution gardens and the monument to the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. It is a little away from the rest of the memorials, so you have to watch for it, but it's worth a trip from the beaten path that is the reflecting pool.... More
