“John F. Kennedy memorial”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

A very beautiful spot overlooking the water. A fitting tribute to an inspirational man. Nearby a very attractive Korean War Memorial. Well worth visiting.

“Very Peaceful Place”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This memorial is so different than others that I have seen because it is outdoors and at one of JFK's favorite places to play. It was also instructional as there was a person sitting there to answer questions. It also is next to the Korean War Memorial and that was nice because you could walk on the sidewalk area from one to the other. The flowers there were beautiful and blooming. The memorial sits in front of a peaceful ocean view of an assortment of boats and right next door to the Hyannis Yacht Club which I'm sure JFK was a member. It is free also which is nice and doesn't occupy your entire day to see.

“Very Pretty”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

A visit to the memorial is something we seem to do every years when we are down there. It's such a pretty spot, with the plants and the beautiful fountain . It's a grantee stop if you are taking a tour of the Hyannis area. Another great thing about the Memorial, is that the bathrooms at Veteran's Beach are always open during the day.
