  • Nice place to visit after seeing the Vietnam Memorial. Peaceful but small. The whole mall are is beautiful. Nicer places to visit. 
  • We took some time out from sightseeing to sit at the park, it is a very serene and beautiful place nestled between many of the D.C. landmarks. Great place to read, relax or picnic at. 
  • 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...  more »

  • A quiet (by National Mall standards) portion of our national park. Relax along the pond. Watch the ducks (and litter) float by. Visit the lesser talked about Signers memorial. And enjoy the only restroom in the area :(
  • You can see and visit nearly every memorial in DC. I had so much fun. It made me feel like I was in a movie
  • Lovely, semi-hidden locale, with a serene pond brimming with fish, turtles and water birds. It's amazing such a place exists in DC, and yet it's a short walk to many of most famous monuments. Bring a blanket and fishing pole and enjoy nature in our country's capital!
  • Very calm and wonderful spot, however I have knocked off a star from my review due to poor nighttime lighting along the walking paths. In the daytime this is a fantastic choice for a rest or picnic, but I wouldn't walk through here at night without a flashlight.
  • Beautiful place to spend the afternoon. Whether you are travelling between monuments or just talking a stroll through the park, there are plenty of sights to soak up and enjoy.
