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 in town, this park is home to the Waynesboro Arboretum. The arboretum has tree collections, shrub displays, bulb plantings, annual and perennial areas.
