For Kids


The National Parks are great places to learn about your hometown, your history and your own place in the natural world. Come to the park and tour John F. Kennedy's birthplace with a park ranger, solve puzzles, and become a Junior Ranger. In the summer, rangers lead walks that take you to the places John F. Kennedy explored and played in as a boy. Can't visit the site? You can still check out what John F. Kennedy's childhood was like through our virtual tour.
