    Beautiful landmark
    We took our kids to this fountain during our visit and they loved playing in the fountain while we took in waterfront views. I would recommend it and it's a great spot for kids during a hot day. The kids get pretty wet and it can get deep for the smaller kids, so it's probably smart to bring a change of clothes.

    worth a visit
    cute photo op place. We went around 10 am so it wasn't so hard to get a pic, but I can see how it could be. I think the best time would be late afternoon, the sun wasn't int he perfect spot for us yet.

    Nice place for a walk!
    Waterfront park is a nice walk. Go to the Battery; stroll back on East Bay Street to Market Street. It's a good place to go. Enjoy the fountain, the water views and the beautiful homes.

    Beautiful sight to see It’s a short walk from the Outdoor Market Place. Then continue thru Waterfront Park to Rainbow Road!! Then continue through the French Quarter back to King street for lunch or a happy hour. I recommend the Rooftop at Vendue for lunch. Dinner at Pearlz both are nearby. Or maybe a Happy hour at The Darling Oyster or ay Boubon and Bubbles!

Did paid street parking (meter) in front of Tinto y Crema grabbed coffee and latte walked along the waterfront. You will pass a regular water fountain first and then turn right you will see the pineapple fountain it’s closest to the waterfront.

The park is beautiful, as is the fountain. The view into the harbor from the fountain is beautiful as well. We didn't initially have the fountain on our list to visit, but glad we did. It was worth seeing.

Beautiful fountain. Worth the time it took to find a parking space. Took so many pictures trying to get no other people in photo. Was not impossible.

The iconic Pineapple Fountain at the Charleston waterfront is a must see when in town. Splash and wade in the Fountain to cool off from the heat and humidity.

This is a must do with kids but bring extra clothes because they. Can wade in the fountain. Just down from there is a splash fountain as well. We enjoyed our time in this beautiful park.

We enjoyed seeing the fountain and getting a picture. The other fountain my kids REALLY enjoyed playing in. We didn’t get in the Pineapple fountain, but there was a lot of people in and around it.
