The watefront park has a fountain with all sorts of caution signs for those attempting to get wet. One long area out to the water has swings for sitting and enjoying the view and the weather. No one gave up a swing while we were there, so we had to content ourselves with the scenery.

Large beautiful relaxing waterfront park. It calls one to get a picnic basket or take out meal, wine and cheese ect,, and relax on the spacious lawns, enjoy the fountains and great harbor view.

We just stopped by this park on our way back uptown. It was during lunch time so many people brought their dogs and lunches to just sit and relax during the work day. There are 2 nice fountains in the park and one has a ton of disclaimers but allows you to get into the fountain if you so choose. There is a nice view of Fort Sumter and the surround coastal areas as well.

No bathrooms, vendors or peddlers were at the park when we visited.

We enjoyed the view in the afternoon and found quiet benches to sit on and enjoy our gelato in the evening. The park felt safe even at night.
