“Marsh Walk”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Wide wooden walkway through the Marsh. Not very far so small children and the elderly should be able to navigate without problem. The waterway is beside it so you can see the shrimp boats and kayakers making there way to and from the harbour. The birds are fun to watch....especially when the shrimp boats pull in. This is also where you can get on the water taxi to Charleston or other points of interest. Great little park. Restrooms are nice too.

Not a lot to see but worth a look. Sometimes you can watch dolphin playing along the boardwalk.

“A great little walk in the middle of Mt Pleasant.”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

We stop at Shem Creek park every visit to the Mt Pleasant because it's such a pleasant place to walk, talk and see boats and wildlife. Directly adjacent to the Shem Creek Inn, RB's restaurant and Red's Tavern, Shem Creek Park is a long winding boardwalk that runs along the creek fishing boats use to get to the ocean. There is a long cement pier you can fish from or launch your canoe or kayak. There are two large covered pavillions along the boardwalk in case you need to find some shade or cover from a sudden shower. Benches are everywhere along the way. Heading out, to your right is a great view of the marshland, beautiful homes and lots of birds and wildlife. To your right is the wide creek with fishing boats, pelicans, ducks, otters, dolphin and more. A nice way to spend an hour or two.
