“Waterfront park”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The park is across the street from our hotel (Harborview). It has a large open fountain that the kids like to run through. It has been hot , so was welcome. The park at night has a cool breeze and nice walk with benches. Enjoy

“Prefer a boardwalk”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A portion of the waterfront is a sand type walkway. I like the parts that are brick but wish they had done a nice boardwalk, even if it is the style of myrtle beach.

This park, though, is also for the folks that live across the street so they can walk the dogs and do their business.

Great place to see the water and enjoy the weather. We loved eating at a restaurant on the water, Fleet. Great area to sit and enjoy the weather.

“nice and relaxing”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The park is a great area to catch river breezes and get away from the crowds. It has historical landmarks and places for kids to play. It is a great place to explore, I would definitely recommend. We felt safe there.

“Pineapple Fountain”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is a very nice relaxing park. There are "porch-front" swings, stroll along the edge of Charleston Harbor. There are two fountains. The Vendue Fountain is one that young children can run through. Loved the pineapple fountain, so unusual.
