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, and just enjoying the day. Everything was clean and well maintained.
My intention was to see the 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence memorial and discovered there was more to this area then just that. It was a serene and peaceful walk along the water. There are great views of the Washington Monument and it would be a perfect spot to have lunch and take a break while touring the monuments.
The actual 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence Memorial was across a bridge on an island. There were huge stones each having the signatures of all 56 members. This is also the site for an annual naturalization ceremony for new US citizens.
Like all the other monuments, this is worth a stop.
