John F. Kennedy Memorial in Hyannis

July 15th, 2009 by cassels

Tucked away by the beach across the Cape from us is the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park.

Remembering the nation’s 34th president and a former Hyannis Port local, this contemplative site pays tribute to the man who created “Camelot”.

Many come to this park to gain introspective on John F. Kennedy and the loss of his transforming character. The Memorial features a stone wall set with a medallion of his likeness and a pool with a fountain. Hyannis is about 5 miles across the Peninsula from our Bed and Breakfast in Cape Cod.

The Memorial park also looks out on Lewis Bay and the ocean where John F. Kennedy spent so many happy moments with family and friends.

The Kennedy Memorial is right next to the beach, and can be a cool place to relax after sunbathing or lots of activity. Right next to this park is a Korean War Memorial. These parks are a great place for a shady picnic, or if you are traveling with Grandma & Grandpa, they might enjoy relaxing on park benches under the trees or on the lush lawns in this park in Hyannis.

There is also a JFK Museum in Hyannis, for any of our Bed and Breakfast Cape Cod guests who are history buffs.
