“Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Grab a gelato (our favorite flavor was the salted butter carmel) and head over and find a seat for a relaxing sit. Or have a swing on the pier.

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a great place to take a stroll, take in the view, sit on a swing, enjoy some wonderful ocean breezes, and enjoy the local flavor and people. There is a beautiful fountain, and long pier to walk on. At the end, you can sit on large swings, you can go by the water, you can watch the birds, enjoy the beautiful view, watch for large boats, yachts, etc. It's just a lovely park in this beautiful city.

“A Delightful Place to Stroll with Pleasing Fountains”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is the modern counterpart to the historic Battery location. The Waterfront Park provides the visitor with a pleasing opportunity to enjoy fountains, gardens, and people watching, while also watching sail boats, ocean liners, and waterfowl cruise the harbor.

“Lovely fountain, lovely walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Our hotel was right across the street from the portion of this lovely park with the fountain. It was fun to watch children playing in the jets. Beyond that is a long pier, with several swings set in the covered portion; or the park actually extends one direction with a lovely walk either along the waterfront, or in a tree-canopied walk. Both are set with benches. A lovely addition to Charleston!

“Lovely and free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We spent several hours on the pier watching a cruise ship leave and the many beautiful sailboats in the harbor. It is a great place to people watch and have a magnificent view of the harbor and bridge. The fountains in the park are lovely, and obviously a great place for photots, we saw two wedding parties one evening when we were there. Be sure to schedule some time in your visit to Charleston to hang out in this lovely waterfront park.
