This "park" is really a wide, well maintained boardwalk over the water. Great for viewing birds, fishermen, shrimp boats, etc. No dolphins while we were there. Easy walk for younger children or older people. Very beautiful surroundings.

10 minutes from downtown, take the Ravenel bridge and Shem Creek is right where Vickerys, Reds, the Shelter and other restaurants are.
