Take a walk throuh the park. There is a lot of history here. Cannon's aimed at the Fort, lynching sites and several beautiful fountains. Ride a carriage or walk the streets Charleston is a great adventure. Many old revolutionary homes.

You have to visit the pineapple fountain. Plenty of sail boats were out on the water with a good view of the bridge

The Waterfront Park is a nice place to walk and people-watch. Lots of activity, lots of all you want in a waterfront park!

stroll around this lovely park by the peninsula, take a swing under the covered area and admire the view, take a run through the fountains, smell the flowers, look for dophins in the ocean, sit on the bench and relax.Great picnic spot. Bring a towel for the kids

Spent 4 days in Charleston and found ourselves coming back to the waterfront park, just to enjoy the view. The swings on the pier were always in use and on warm days, several kids walked in the fountain! Great place to relax and people watch!

Liked the scenery. There is so much of it to enjoy. The swings and fountains are relaxing and looking out across the water watching the sailboats was just beautiful. Didn't like the bugs at dusk.

The park itself is free. It gives you an over view of the harbor, place for kids to run and play. Kids can even plsy in the water area. Very attractive area for photo ops.

Although we visited this lovely linear park along the entry to Charleston Harbor on a breezy day with some spitting rain, it was a refreshing visit with lots of good views. There's a large roofed gazebo with plenty of benches for those who need a rest, views of the harbor sights like Fort Sumter (pretty distant) and Pinkney's Castle among... More
