We stopped to see this veterans park while we were in the area. The JFK memorial is well done and overlooks the ocean. The Korean's Memorial is outstanding too.

Nice walk from downtown, or a easy drive with parking. Set right on the Lewis Bay, it's beside a town beach with a play are for kids. If you're in Hyannis go for visit.

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.
