During my visit, I took shelter here from the rain by staying under the trees located along this attraction. I was expecting some flowers because it is named, Constitution Garden, there was none. All I saw was a pond with some trees, geese and ducks....More

Constitution Gardens is a grassy area with one lesser known memorial (in honor of the signers of the Declaration of Independence) and a pond. Often tourists overlook it, but there are advantages to paying it a visit: 1) Respite: Locating just south of the World...More

My wife and I strolled through Constitution Gardens while walking between the Vietnam Memorial and the World War II Memorial. Disgusting is the first word that comes to mind. The pond was full of trash and pond scum. Also, I didn't see anything that even...More

Located just north of the reflection pool between the WWII memorial and Lincoln Memorial, this garden and pond is worth the stop. We stopped at sunset and it was lovely! A couple Magnolia trees and some cherry blossoms make the island quite picturesque!

The ornamental gardens provide a bit of respite from the crowds at all the memorials, monuments and vendors along the National Mall. Very nice for a peaceful walk, and even in late November, there was some beautiful fall foliage to admire along with the views...More

This is an average garden in an above average area. I wouldn't walk out of my way to see it but it's included in many tours and something you walk through from point a to point b on the national mall.
