“Great views of the Beaufort River”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I spent quite a bit of time here during our four-day stop in Beaufort. South Carolina's second-oldest city has a wonderful historic downtown district, anchored by the Chambers Waterfront Park. From here, you can get great views of the Beaufort River, the Woods Memorial Bridge, the western tip of Lady's Island, the eastern side of Port Royal Island, and the northern tip of Paris Island. You can also stroll along or enjoy the swings. The park consist of live oak lined and waterfront walking paths, a children's playground, a pavilion, tables for outdoor dining, several swings overlooking the water, and tons of open green space with breath-taking views of The Beaufort River/ICW. There isn't much to do - but if you have some food from one of the many restaurants along Bay Street, you can sit in the park and eat it (you could even bring a picnic lunch if you like), but it's a great place just to sit and relax.

“Enjoyed the leisure atmosphere”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We enjoyed walking and sitting on the swings watching the boats go by the water. This park has plenty of room for kids to play and run around as well as privacy for couples who want to just enjoy the a romantic stroll at the park.

“Serene...mostly”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Beautiful spot where we wound up every afternoon to rest our feet, swing, have a glass of tea, or just people watch. We even saw the bridge swing open. The only downside was getting hit up one afternoon by a panhandler.

“What a delightful spot!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This calm strip of grass with wonderful views has the added attraction of a string of porch-type swings for enjoying the passing scene. Well done, Beaufort!
