This memorial is quite nice. There is a lovely picture of the Kennedy’s when you walk in. The flowers and the grounds are kept up beautifully. Of course, it is located right next to the water which makes it all that much more appealing.

We are all great admirers of the Kennedys, so we wanted to check this out. It’s a wall, and a fountain...and that’s about it. It’s nice, but there isn’t much to it. If you linger for a while you can spend 10 minutes here.

Average tourist attraction with free very short term parking. If you are driving by stop and take a look but it's not worth a special trip out of the way.

Very nicely maintained memorial garden for JFK and soldiers from the Korean War. However, many Canadian geese were on the ground feeling off something, so there were subsequent excrement everywhere. Just watch your step or you will have carpet issues in the car.

The monument overlooks the harbor providing a spectacular view of the shoreline. The monument is tastefully done. A very nice spot to sit and contemplate what could have been.

Charming place set in a small but well maintained area with beautiful flowers and lawns over looking the ocean. Easy access from car park with paths/walkways. There is also the statue of a soldier and name tiles on the floor as tribute to those who...More

Enjoy this little visit for a more quiet get away from the madness that can be around. Simple, serene sight, overlooking the water that has a nice, clean beach. You can’t make a day of it, however. Limited parking time in season. Has a lovely...More

JFK Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and Statue of the Chief are beautiful memorials. It was an honor to visit and pay tribute.

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.
