This is a nice quiet spot overlooking the harbour. I think it must be more significant to Americans than foreign visitors. The water level in the reflecting pool was low so there was no reflection. It is not the greatest monument to a President that...More

This memorial to JFK is beautiful. It is in a very peaceful spot on the water near Veterans Park not far from the Kennedy compound.

We stopped to see this veterans park while we were in the area. The JFK memorial is well done and overlooks the ocean. The Korean's Memorial is outstanding too.

While visiting the Memorial, the Canadian Geese were out in full force and have taken up residence; you'll need to be wary of their droppings on the various pathways!

Nice walk from downtown, or a easy drive with parking. Set right on the Lewis Bay, it's beside a town beach with a play are for kids. If you're in Hyannis go for visit.

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.
