Constitution Gardens

An oasis in the nation's capital.

Situated between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, Constitution Gardens is a quiet oasis removed from the bustling capital, with the potential to function as an important social space and a welcome respite on the Mall.

The re-imagined Constitution Gardens will retain its original purpose as a pastoral setting, but offer sustainable space for education and entertainment in all seasons, day and night. See the plan here.

The 38-acre park was officially dedicated in 1976 after reconstruction under the bicentennial restoration of the National Mall. In July 1982, an island in the center of the Garden’s 6-acre lake was dedicated to the 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence.
