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.

Sunset

Great place to watch the sunset. It has been several years since we have visited. Always something fun going on in this park.

Great place to watch the traffic on the river, especially the large cargo ships coming into port. Look out over the marsh and view the Yorktown.

We went there about 9:00 one evening and my daughter played on the playground, we walked out onto the pier, and we had a wonderful evening! I highly recommend this!

We stopped in on our way home from a weekend trip. I wish we would've come at sunset. It's beautiful. Great place to let kids get energy out. They had fishing from the pier which we didn't do (this time :) ) We loved seeing the Ravenel Bridge in that way. Kids played on the playground. Plenty of walking areas.... More

This is a jewel in Mt. P's crown. The facilities are well done, there is ample parking, the pier is a great place to fish, sit on a swing or stroll and take in the view beneath the bridge. It is a short walk across the parking lot and down the sidewalk to the base of the bridge where one... More

A pleasant walking area, secure, and an awesome view of the harbor, and a chance to fish if you want.

We went here to fish and was surprised at how beautiful it was with the War Memorial Fountain, and the beautiful scenery. We went on a cloudy day, took our own poles, but you can rent if you don't have one, and it's only $3 to fish which was nice for a family of 5! Kids absolutely loved fishing! We... More

We watched 4th of July fireworks here and enjoyed sitting under the bridge and looking out over Patriots Point. The landscaping is beautiful. There is a fountain and some statues as well. There's also a great playground for kids.

Attractive little park in the shadow of the bridge, on the day we were there they were setting up some rides and games for the weekend program.

Took my Mom-in-law down here when she visited Charleston. Know about this place as my wife and I enquired about renting the building facility for our wedding which is owned by Charleston County Parks and Recreation. This is a very pleasant park nestled just below the start of the Mt Pleasant side of the Ravenel Bridge. It has a grassy... More
