Well kept memorial w/ a nice walking path to the beach. Memorial overlooks the ocean. Lots of geese poop, but otherwise worth it to stop by in you're in the area.

As we weren't yet sleeping to local time we walked to see the memorial and watch the sunrise. It was awesome and a great setting sitting by the memorial.

Accessible by the summer running Hyannis Trolley, the JFK Memorial is a fitting tribute in honor of her favorite son and President. The park is beautifully appointed, has a wonderful Oceanside location and inspires personal contemplation, picture taking and people watching.

While driving to Veterans beach in Hyannis, I stumbled upon this memorial to the late President. The stone work and fountain make this quite the tranquil place to reflect on why we as a society have never demanded the truth.

Not much to see, just a semi-circular wall and a plaque commemoration JFK May have been an eternal flame here. At one time, but not a fountain flows
