Navigating the Cape Cod Region’s Blue Economy

Aselton Park

Aselton Park

Aselton Park overlooks busy Hyannis Harbor, a hub of blue economy for the Town of Barnstable, and the Cape Cod region.


Michael K. Aselton park is a wee patch of loveliness tucked away just off Main Street in downtown Hyannis. It’s one of the few public green spaces in the area where you can hang out just inches from the water.

Hyannis Harbor: Aselton Park

Created in the 1980s to preserve access to the water for everyone, Aselton Park provides classic New England views, grass for picnics, and a walkway between Main Street and Hyannis Harbor. Once an oyster farm, the Park now hosts concerts, fairs and connects us to both water and fun


Hyannis Harbor: Cape Cod Maritime Museum

Maritime culture fuels life on Cape Cod, as you can see by looking around Hyannis Harbor. At the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, boat-building classes, engaging exhibits, and a Harbor sail in their very own catboat are just some of the fun activities on offer. Check out the historic wooden boats!

Hyannis Inner Harbor

Inner Hyannis Harbor is action-packed! Sport fishing boats take people fishing for blues or stripers. Harbor tours cruise out to see beaches, breakwaters, and the Kennedy Compound. A pirate ship sets sail! Many restaurants provide great food plus the perfect place to sit and watch the view – or the people.
