Description: Called the crown jewel of Mount Pleasant, Memorial Waterfront Park offers...
Called the crown jewel of Mount Pleasant, Memorial Waterfront Park offers more than just your average park. Located under the grand entryway to the town, at the base of the Ravenel Bridge, this park has plenty of lawn for enjoying family picnics, a nautical-themed playground modeled after the bridge that provides shade and the boats that pass by in the harbor, and soft-serve ice cream from the River Watch Cafe. The cafe offers beautiful views of Charleston Harbor and a 1,250-foot-long pier where you can sit and swing a while. Memorial Waterfront Park is also home to the Sweetgrass Cultual Arts Pavilion, War Memorial and Visitor Center.

This park is situated under the Ravenel Bridge and has a playground, pier, small shop, and the Mount Pleasant Visitor's Center. It's well maintained and manicured, and affords some of the best close-up views of the bridge. Best of all, it's free to park and visit, so if you want a good location for photos without paying any sort of... More

This is a great place to visit. The park is beautifully maintained and has a little shop, bathrooms, memorial water feature and a children's playground. The park and Pier is built parallel to the Arthur J Ravenel Bridge and it is awesome to see the huge piers and look up to the roadway and bridge span. The Pier is great... More

Take a walk and enjoy the view! The park has a little cafe, spots to fish, and just sit and watch the boats go down the river. The landscaping is gorgeous too.

The Waterfront Park is a great place to carry your children because of its location and the safety issue that accompanies the park. There is an enclosed playground with some great apparatuses to play on. The view is spectacular and it is FREE. Adults with children in hand can walk out to the pier that goes under the Ravenal Bridge... More

Good views of the river and Charleston. You can even fish from the pier. Lots of people parked there since it has easy access to the bridge path.
