Waterfront park was gorgeous and the large historical homes in the area added to the charm and we enjoyed several leisurely strolls.

Really pretty park to walk along the waterfront, stroll under the trees, take a break at them any benches and just enjoy those with/around you. We went on 4th of July and it was littered with anxious families waiting for fireworks. The park is big enough to never really feel too crowded with all those folks. They have a great fountain the kids were enjoying also. Really pretty way to see the waterfront.

We chose this place to have a quick, intimate wedding this past weekend because this is our favorite and most beautiful place ever.

Strolling around Charleston was hot and humid with little breeze until we found Waterfront Park. The trees and water provided a very pleasant place to sit and relax. Great views.
