I would not recommend for you to build your itinerary around it. There is not much to see, and it's nothing more than a park. Plus there is not a lot of green spaces in it to sit down or do a pic-nic.

Loved walking along the waterfront. They have made it very nice to stroll along(all paved). We let the little one play in the grassy area, while we set on the benches. Lots of photo opps here!!!

We stopped here on the Lowcountry Walking Tour of Charleston. The big trees make for welcome shade, and there is a monument recording the capture and execution of pirates, as well as cannons used by both the North and the South during the Civil War and beautiful views of old homes and Charleston Harbor.

This is a very beautiful area of Charleston. I would recommend that anyone visiting Charleston go see it. They have done a lot of renovations since the first time I went approx. 38 years ago.

Wonderful views and lots of fresh air with gentle breezes. A nice place for an evening stroll after dinner. We enjoyed walking on both the water side as well as the side towards the mansions.

This is a beautiful park right along the waterfront. There are cannons, statues and plenty of trees. Not to mention the beautiful houses in the area. Park along the water if you can get a spot.

This is a must-see park. It's right on the water, has he historical cannons and it's right by all the big beautiful houses that you're going to want to walk and see too. Parking isn't great though, so drive at your own risk!

Took a stroll and let my granddaughter climb a few trees. Snuck in a little history along with the fun time.
