The waterfront is a nice stroll. You must take the pineapple fountain picture,along with the squirrels! Nice spot to visit if you have spare time.

So nice to sit on the porch swings in the afternoon- getting out of the heat and a nice breeze. Such lovely views.

Beautiful to stroll through, people watch. Lovely fountains. You can take off your shoes and cool your feet in one of the fountains. The other fountain is a pineapple fountain a southern hospitality welcome.

We took my nephew here and he played in the fountains and played with other children on the grassy Noles and chased birds and watched ships and boats on the water. Great place for families, children and groups. Very peaceful and great view, close to everything downtown Charleston.

Beautiful park and view of the river. Pineapple fountain was a focal point. The history of the park is interesting as well.

Pretty park on the water. We loved the fountains which cooked us off a bit. Try an Italian Ice on a hot day. I loved the pineapple fountain.
