After visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, it is nice to continue the walk down towards the Washington Monument, Before reaching it, you will come across the Constitution Gardens on your right side. In the middle of the gardens, is a wall where the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence Memorial is located with the names of the signers. A... More

The pond, the view of the Washington Monument and the walk from the National Mall all made my visit to the gardens that much better. It was like an oasis in the city, away from the crowds by the monument and even the Reflection Pool yet so close to both.

We were on a tour with a guide and just went to a few. They are unbelievable. The Korean War, Lincoln, Jefferson, Martin Lauther King to name a few. Also see them at night as they are so beautiful lite up. Need a car to get around as it is a very big park.

There were a lot of dead fish floating at the top of the pond... this made it hard to enjoy our walk to the Lincoln Memorial. I'm not sure if it was due to the heat or water quality, but I'm sure they could have scooped them up somehow. RIP.

One of the interesting areas of The Mall is the Constitution Gardens located in between the Lincoln Memorial Reflection Pool and Constitution Ave. NW. This is a 50 acre nature area with a small pond and quite green space for those wanting to escape the crowds found around the many monuments and memorials along The Mall. The pond is surrounded...

We visited Constitution Garden enroute to the Ellipse Park. A really nice garden, many benches to take a break from the long walk to the White House. The walking path meander around a pond with many ducks. It was really pretty.

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
