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.
