“quiet place , view of the Charles river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Just a couple of blocks away from the Harvard Square scene, Kennedy park has a great view of the Charles River. Bring your book, food or just relax, it is large enough to get away from any crowds that may intrude in your space. In the summer its a nice shady area. However, since I do not get to Cambridge that often any more, I enjoy it in the cooler times of the year too. If you are around the area, stop by and sit a spell.

“A very good spot to relax and enjoy nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

As I roam around Cambridge despite heat wave warning, I really needed a place to sit, relax and enjoy the beautiful Memorial Drive. JFK Park serves that need perfectly. If you pass through Memorial Drive, make sure you stop by JFK Park. You will not regret it.
