Do you know these five Kennedy Park facts?
1. It was originally in Rhode Island and was named South Park
Today, the 57-acre historic park is in the southern part of Fall River but this area was, until 1862, part of Tiverton, Rhode Island. A large shift in town lines occurred that year which also combined the adjacent towns of Fall River, Massachusetts and Fall River, Rhode Island. The park retained its original name until 1963, following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
