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.
As part of our promise to the National Mall, the Trust, with help from architects Peter Walker & Rogers Marvel, has developed a solution that reimagines the park. The plan improves the landscape to fulfill its potential as a serene and beautiful area. See the plans to revitialize Constitution Gardens.
The 52-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.
