Very serene and beautiful setting. The park faces the bay and is surrounded by mature trees. A tranquil resting place

The VietNam Veterans Memorial did not display our country's flag. The flag and Veterans have a common thread. Please display a flag at this Memorial.

Clean beach, nice sand. Lifeguarded when we were there which is always nice. Kids bought skim boards and learned how to use them along the shore line. Water was very clean and had an enjoyable afternoon! Only drawback was had to pay for parking

My family stopped to check out the Veteran's Memorial while on vacation and it was a real nice stop. Very peaceful view and something to see while in Hyannis.

We checked out Veterans' Park while staying in Hyannis, and loved the JFK Memorial and Korean War Memorial at the top of the hill. Both were really nice. The beach is very nice as well, but it's facing the harbour and has many boats. However, since it's not facing Nantucket Sound like the other Hyannis beaches, the water is a... More
