“Typical city park - nothing fancy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Nice fountain on the SW corner of the park. Take a history tour and they will tell you all about the public hangings that took place in Marion Square back in the day. Otherwise, it's a park. A couple homeless people laying around, but nothing fancy.

“Saturday farmer's market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

This was fun and has a great atmosphere. Mostly locals and families., but it was great for people watching and a relief from architecture and touristy stuff. especially, if you have children.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Some lovely artwork in pop up tents ... At night, drunks at the fountain. though a police care was in the park, it's a shame.

“Piccolo Spoleto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

The annual outdoor 'Juried art exhibition' is always interesting if only to try to show you how out of step you are! Every ribbon was awarded to an 'arty' piece with the exception of the Mayor's Choice which was a charcoal REAL work of art. We bought a photo print from Steven Hyatt who had been featured in a photo in the Courier, mainly because we could see what it was with no interpretation needed.

“Charming, beauty & relation all in one!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a beautifully charming small but great park to walk through. It is centrally located to all in downtown Charleston and has well maintained grassy areas, fountains, and statues. Great to spot to enjoy a relaxing afternoon, taste & purchase local foods, treats & unique items from the many local artisians that are frequently set up in the park.
