Lots of Memorials in Constitution Gardens. The most notable are the Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean War, and World War II Memorials. But there are others there, as well. If you have time, stroll around and find them all.

This area is a little hidden and no other people were there when we went to have a look. A great little peek into the history of America, and the gardens and engraved names and signatures were fantastic. Loved it.

The Constitution Gardens are located between the Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial in the National Mall. It includes a small island, accessible by a wooden footbridge, that leads to a memorial to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, arranged by state. The signatures of each of the men are carved into large granite blocks and... More

And it’s just a block from all the action along the National Mall. Despite how busy the nearby monuments and memorials were, this place was wonderfully calm. A long pond is at the center with many ducks swimming inside. The sidewalks were clean with several areas to sit and face out into the pond. Overall, this was just a great... More

I was looking for a patch of greenery in DC where I might find a little peace and quiet and see some birds. Although this area is great for that I was a bit disappointed at the amount of trash I saw in the water and on the ground. There are many Canadian geese and ducks here (some with babies).... More

The spot is situated between the Vietnam Memorial and the WWII Memorial. There are no flowers, if that is your impression of "garden". There is a lake and some trees. If you are on the west side, you could take a nice picture of the Washington Monument in the background and the lake in the middle ground. Attended a concert... More

This a beautiful lake with a view over the Washington monument. It's located between the Lincoln memorial and the Washington monument. It's a good spot to rest a bit and enjoy the views.

This is not a garden. Its a lake in the national mall with some threes and close to the Vietnam War Memorial. Its not an attraction at all.

This could use some update, or sprucing to gain the attention it deserves. The focus is on the 56 Signers, but you have to know that to get interested in visiting the small island. The "garden" area isn't that well kept and could use a pick me up.
