A free memorial to stop by while walking around downtown Jul 03, 2011
On a cross-country trip from Washington DC to California, one of our pit-stops was in Dallas. We drive around downtown a bit and then parked the car so we could wander. We really just came upon it and didn't know what it was until we walked through it, to the other side, and read the plaque.

It was an open memorial to JFK and it was placed downtown in an area that was just a few blocks away from where he was shot. There is some grass surrounding it at all sides and so if you have a picnic lunch and it's not too hot, you can eat nearby.

Its a solid and massive structure and you can walk around it and through it. There are 2 small plaques in the front with some information, but you won't spend a lot of time here. We didn't get a chance to, but we saw some people taking some cool pics. One guy was squatting at the corner making it look as if he was trying to pick it up as well as some other visually confusing pics. If you're walking around downtown, make your way to Dealey Plaza and to some of the museums nearby as well as the Visitors Center in the Old Red Museum (full of lots of info-our problem is that we found it at the END of our wandering around and were on our way out of town!)

this memorial is an open tomb.it's a nice place to view and has a great design

The corners and "doors" of this roofless room are decorated with rows of concrete circles, or medallions, each identical and perfectly aligned. These decorations introduce the circular shape into the square architecture of the Kennedy Memorial.
