So beautiful and picturesque. A great place to hang out and walk for a little while. The swings are nice and the tree canopy park is beautiful.

Charleston does a wonderful job of maintaining and preserving it’s beautiful city. The Waterfront’s nicely maintained acres are no exception. You may want to come here and sit for a while, clear your mind, meditate, read a book, people watch, walk, picnic, daydeam while taking in the awesome view. The waterfront prominade yields plenty of space to sit /stand. There is a picnic area with tables, as well. The splendidly designed Pineapple Fountain is not to be missed. It is perfect for a photo op. This place on your is worthy of your to-visit list, while in Charleston.

One of the most relaxing things to do in Charleston and it will only cost you a parking fee! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the waves and the ships come and go! We even saw a dolphin or two!

Very nice park, plenty of place to sit and social distance while enjoying the view of the water. Best part are the swinging benches on the pier! There were a decent chunk of kids playing in the water fountains, a little too much for my likening in this Covid world but none of them were mine so that’s their parents business. Highly recommend this spot for a calming activity after you hit King St or Rainbow Row.
