Land for this park was donated in part by E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company. The park has been the location of numerous special events including concerts, festivals, car shows, and Civil War reenactments. In addition, Constitution Park is also home to the Waynesboro’s Farmers Market, numerous soccer activities, and two shelters. This site was also designated as Virginia's first Urban Trout Fishery.
For gardening enthusiasts, this park is home to the Waynesboro Arboretum. The arboretum has tree collections, shrub displays, bulb plantings, annual and perennial areas.
The South River Greenway runs through Constitution Park for 1.2 miles along the South River, from the Loth Springs parking area on Arch Avenue, behind the YMCA, to the Port Republic neighborhood. Parking at this end is available at the Shiloh Baptist Church auxiliary parking lot right at the trail head. There is also parking available downtown at the Arch Avenue Parking Lot and the Invista lot.
