The memorial was great, but the upkeep was not up to par. The geese made a mess of the area, and their droppings were not cleaned up. What a mess! No excuse!

This Monument is beautifully located and immaculately kept. The view is great. Free parking next to it limited to 30 minutes. Look for wild birds in the trees and bushes around it.

Sadly it was not great weather when we stopped in Hyannis on the way to CT so didn't get to spend any time on the beautiful beach opposite the memorial. Don't missed the statue commemorating the Korean War soldiers nearby.

This is a nice and relaxing park along the ocean, and a fitting tribute to a great president. You can walk along the water or simply sit on the lawn.

It's a nice little stop through Hyannis. The memorial park overlooks the bay that JFK used to sail through. It's fitting that they placed the memorial here. There are lights under the fountain in the reflection pond. The fountain is meant to be the eternal...More

Stopped here on our Cape Cod excursion in September. Very few people around so had the Memorial to ourselves. It is simple and tastefully presented. I would not recommend using the public toilets nearby (I stress they are not part of the Memorial), dire.

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.
