This was just down the road from the hotel we stayed at. It's really a beautiful park on the water. There's covered seating out along the pier if one want's to relax near the water. There's also lovely tree canopy's along a path with benches throughout for shaded relaxation. It's kept very manicured and very clean. There's a fountain that... More

Such fun to walk the waterfront of Charleston Harbor. Historic homes, watercraft activities, Ft Sumter in the distance, the new Ravenal Bridge off in the other direction....just a great stroll but don't be in any hurry. This is the South, afterall, you all!

A pretty park with nice views of the harbor and a lovely fountain that you've seen on the local postcards. Worth 30 minutes wandering through the park.

We stopped in Charleston for the afternoon to break up an 8 hour road trip; the park was our plan to let the kids run and play and give us a few ours out of the car. Fountain was fun and the kids played there, too. Park is scenic; nice area to walk. Small but you can leave the park... More

Our stroll here made us feel at home in Charleston. There were families walking, kids playing ball, couples having picnics. The view of the water is great; you can see Ravenel Bridge too. But the best part was the giant pineapple fountain. You can wade in it, and we had some laughs with strangers at this quirky fountain.

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
