Not great- just good. Spend more time peering over the sand dune at the property- its much more fun! Enjoy it in the summer- its awesome.

A quick visit was all we needed. All it took was 20 minutes and that was the same as the free parking offered. I was worth it though, whilst being in the area. The kind gentleman selling JFK memorial caps was funny to. I bought three as support.

A simple and dignified memorial with a great seaside view; somewhere to pause for a few minutes and remember or,for those not old enough to remember, to,reflect.

This memorial is located on Kalmus Beach overlooking Hyannis Harbor. It is very well kept and the gardens are beautifully manicured. Next to it is a memorial to the Korean War, also very beautifully done.

It is a beautiful park and located right next to the Korean War Memorial, which is lovely. Park is meticulous and the views of the ocean are beautiful.

It's just off Ocean St on the way to the beach. Free and takes about 15 minutes to take in. Do it in the morning if you can since the sun rises on the monument. Also check out the Korean War monument that is located a couple hundred feet away.

It was very interesting! Peaceful and a very pretty scenario overseeing the harbor! But not a lot to see. In 15 minutes you see all that needs to be seen.

We stopped to check this out and found it to be very peaceful and quiet. A time to reflect. Lovely water fountain.

This monument is a 10+ minute walk from Main Street back to a peaceful, seaside park. The monument is adjacent to the area's Korean War memorial.
