If you like watching the water, then you will enjoy haning out in this historic park with all of the beautiful old civil war era homes overlooking. Just beautiful.

the restrooms are behind the art gallery in the parking garage across the street at the corner of Prioleau and N Atlantic Warf in the parking garage. The park is beautiful but when you have to pack up and leave to find a potty is ridiculous.

If the weather is good, park at the tip of the Charleston peninsula & explore the city on foot. Waterfront Park is beautifully-landscaped with well-maintained walkways and gorgeous views.

A great place to stop and reflect, watch the water or listen to the fountain. Best enjoyed when the weather is clear and comfortable.

How can you visit Charleston and not go to this park. It's fantastic. Beautiful walkway along the harbor. Great views of Fort Sumter. Walk down toward battery park and see some old artillery pieces. It is some calm and peaceful there. The houses along the road are amazing as well.

This is a lovely place to walk and enjoy the view. Also near to several restaurants and an excellent place to get gelato to enjoy in the park.

Nice break from the sun and heat while out exploring. We stopped and sat on benches under huge shade trees and enjoyed the breeze coming off the water.

Walked along the seawall from Fleet Landing Bar and Grill to Battery Park. Beautiful old and restored homes along the seawall road from start to finish. Great views and history.

When we come to Charleston we like to go to the waterfront. It's nice place to go before or after touring the city. The park is a great area to walk through and enjoy the scenery. There are plenty of artillery pieces scattered through the park to look at. The homes along the waterfront are old and historic and are... More

I was staying at the Vendue which is about a half block to the park so after breakfast I walked down sit in the swings and people watched. It was so clean and well kept.
