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.

We had a little trouble finding this and figuring out a good place to park, (GPS didn't recognize the name). But there is a great view, and an opportunity to see the abstract of the "under-highway"; very pictureque. But.....the sound of the traffic is a little distracting if you're looking for a quiet place to spend some time. Beautifully developed,... More

Really a pretty view from the pier. Love the swings along the way. We also get in at least one walk along this pier whenever we are in town.

beautifully landscaped, gorgeous, upscale pavilion probably used as wedding/event venue, nice to sit and watch the birds with a cup of coffee, nice playground and pier, but way too much traffic from elevated highway

This park gives you a great variety to do. There are often public events there as well but just as is, it's a definite to visit. Take a walk over the longest cable suspension bridge (bring water if you are going the whole 2.5 miles each way). Or keep it simple and have a picnic on a bench watching the... More

Even when we're weary from an all day drive and just traveling through Charleston, this is a must stop place for the kids. We live 2 hours away from Charleston and they're constantly asking when we'll go back.

This is a fun little park that is less than well-known and sits at the base of the suspension bridge crossing the river. It has a great view of Charleston, the aircraft carrier, and the giant bridge all from the pier.

i was astonished after we reached there to find it as the top things to do on Trip advisor. It has just couple of fountains and a small walk with few swings which are always occupied. It is nice to just have a relaxing time to just sit and talk. Nothing major to see or offer.

I'm sorry that the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park did not meet your expectations. Based on your feedback, I was curious if you enjoyed all the elements of our park. It features a Visitor Center, Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Pavilion, War Memorial and 1250 foot fishing and pedestrian pier. If you have any suggestions for improvement, we would be happy to... More

I found the park by accident while figuring out how to get on the bridge for a walk. Ample, safe parking, great playground, gift shop and clean bathrooms. What more could you ask for? I can see how this park would be great for social events, it is extremely well maintained with beautiful grounds. If you walk towards the water... More

Something for everyone -- playground for children, fishing off the pier, gift shop, food, open spaces to walk, bench to sit and watch or contemplate, long pier, shade, swings on the pier. The entire atmosphere feels friendly!
