A great place to watch the sunset, catch a warm breeze, spy on the cruise ships, try to hook a fish, and/or swing on one of the bench swings. Often, there are Dolphins and other wildlife to see.

I was not sure where to leave this review so I chose this mainstream downtown historic attraction. Although nice Charleston is VERY "touristy". Lots of cheap curio shops and obvious tourist traps mixed right in with the historic district. We couldn't help thinking about Savannah a mere 100 miles to the south. All the beauty and history of Charleston with... More

We stopped here on our way to the airport and it's just such a beautiful place to visit! Lots of swings and benches to enjoy the amazing view, and the pineapple fountain was so pretty! We also got to see dolphins right by pier which is always exciting!

The park is a pretty spot to sit and rest up after a walking tour of the city. Clean and attractive. I didn't see any restrooms, but there might have been some.

A must see when you are in Charleston. A little bit of history and nature all together. You can stroll through the waterfront and rest on the numerous benches to take in all the sites and sounds of the waterfront.

Enjoyed the waterfront park, the market, the citadel, and the surrounding area. Took in several tours including a plantation tour. The history of the area was very interesting. We would love to go back.

A charming & relaxing place. It is on the FREE Green Bus Line. It fills with locals and tourist, alike.The large pier at the up stream end, extends into the Cooper River, This is a great place to bring a sandwich/lunch. Even a shower will not dampen you, as much of the pier is under roof. Open year round, it... More

The view is spectacular, and the walk restful. Good way to get a feel for the town, while meandering in an out of this park.
