The waterfront park is a place I must visit everytime I am in Charleston. It is located on Vendue Range and there are swings on the pier--views of Patriots Point and the harbor area. The fountain had pink water in observance of breast cancer awareness this month. This is also the place you will find the pineapple fountain to take pictures in front of. There is a gelato place nearby so grab you some gelato and sit on the swing and enjoy the views. It was a little chilly when we visited yesterday so no children were playing in the fountain.

We love to make a stop here at the Park on our visits to Charleston. It's a great place to relax on the swings and see the waterfront and people watch. Really thought the pink water in the fountain was a nice touch for Breast Cancer Month.

Nice place for a stroll along the water front with nice views and some people watching. The pink fountain was a little startling, but pretty cool. It is right off the main city market area and is good for a break from the crowds there.

I have to admit, I absolutely love the water so it would be hard to make this a place I wouldn't like but I LOVED this. They have a beautiful fountain with lavender water flowing. A long wharf has swings to sit in and watch the ships. We watched dolphins playing in front of us. It is a beautiful place with a nice waterfront restaurant next to the wharf. I wasn't in love with Charleston until we walked here. Do not miss it!

Enjoyed the Waterfront park a lot during our visit. Its very clean and nicely "decorated" and there are a lot nice places to sit and enjoy the view to the water.
