John F. Kennedy Memorial reviews
An unusual memorial overlooking the bay where JFK used to sail his boat Victura. The boat is now on display at the JFK Presidential Library in Boston.

A fitting tribute and park to a great American President. A very nice park and monuments. The geese are annoying to visitors.

Lovely reminder to JFK and shows how much of an impact his death had. Definitely worth a detour to visit for a few minutes (and visit the Korean War Memorial adjacent to it).

I don’t like giving this four stars, as I was very moved when I got there/walked around. The only reason I am is because there’s just really nothing to do. There’s a cute lil’ old man selling hats 🧢 for $20 bucks inside a tiny booth; but other than that and the scenic water view, there just isn’t much. I’d say 20 minutes here would be stretching it before you get the itch to go on and leave. It’s so sad, because I know Dallas has some amazing places to honor JFK. I was hoping Hyannis would compare. Oh well— as you can see, we had one of the most beautiful days EVER to go, and the skies were like something out of a painting. The picture I took of those homes are right on Ocean St. pulling out of the memorial— I thought they were pretty picturesque!! Just give it a stop, selfie, and go if you get a chance! ♥️
I spent five amazing hours touring through the museum. It was so informative and so full of information and many emotions. It was an honor to attend. Everyone should tour the museum if given the opportunity.
Great monument. Wish it were bigger for one of the greatest presidents of all time.
A nice a simple tribute to President Kennedy inside the the Veterans Park beach and next door to the Korean War Memorial. A very nice playground also is adjacent. The beach parking is as most of the beaches are, require resident sticker for access. Adjacent to the Hyannis Yacht club and not far from the harbor with shops and restaurants.
The tranquility of this memorial is perfect to honor JFK'S memory. There's a trolley bus that goes up and down main street for those who don't want to walk the JFK trail, they can hope on and off free of charge.
