Braginton-Smith family land gift stipulated it be free and have swingset playground equipment
The Hyannis Park Civic Association, (the oldest continuously running civic association on Cape Cod) President Eleanor Bill spearheaded an effort to create the beach. Dorothy Braginton-Smith donated the land to the town on the condition that it remain free, and have a place for the kids to play. Initially, I was one of the Kids (her kids) that enjoyed that beach and the way it beacons to folks year round who watch the ferries endless comings and goings. It is a really amazing thing to watch the large ferries pass by on a cold winter night.
