The wife and I walked up and down this park and took a lot of pictures. We watch the birds dive for fish, saw some dolphins, checked out the pineapple fountain and got some great photos.

Loved the swings they had on the board walk and the shelter, it a beautiful and brilliant park. Definitely worth going to just to see and going back just to relax.

We really enjoyed this park; enjoyed strolling under the tall trees, sitting on a bench looking at the ocean, and watching the children play in the fountain. Very pleasant

My husband and I found this place while we were walking in the downtown but we had to leave because of another appointment we had. But this place stayed in our mind and we came back at night and it was amazing! Beautiful scene, family place, calm, clean and the swings are just perfect so you enjoy it all while... More

This is a great area to spend time with a friend, special someone, or alone. Very relaxing, and tons of pictures can and should be taken.

I traveled with my husband to Charleston while on business. We stayed in historic downtown. My dog and I strolled the streets the first day here and stumbled upon this beauty. Nice place to relax.
