We walked from town to the memorial which was a little further then we thought but worth it. This is a lovely tribute and well maintained.

It is worth a stop if you are in the area. There is a fountain in front of the monument. There also appears to be a swimming beach nearby.

A Hyannis monument to JFK on a tranquil park setting. A beach is down below the park area (not sure of beach parking fees or public accessibility). Also in this park is a Korean War memorial.

Beautiful area with benches and close proximity to the beach. You can leisurely site on the beach and watch and the ferries to the islands and fishing boats depart and return. Nice place!

Very nice memorial to JFK. On the water, great views and pics. The fountain is a nice touch. A Korean War memorial is a short walk down the path. Easy parking but be careful for tour buses, they are filled with people and a good...More

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.
