We even saw a few dolphins popping in and out of the water. The walking trail with the ocean on one side and a beautiful park with lots of shade on... More

We took the free trolley/bus around the historic area an got off at the park The park has a nice pier plus a nice walk way along the river. Very relaxing and seem very safe. The fountain is one of the must see items to check off when visiting this area.

A very nice place to visit and hang out for a bit. Some comfortable swings and a really cool fountain. Parking may be difficult--but it was nice to walk the streets filled with character surrounding it!

On our visit to Charleston we did a lot of walking so when we went to Riley Waterfront we walked onto the pier and sat on the swings and enjoyed the view of the water. It was so relaxing. The fountain and the breeze just added to the down time.

An absolutely beautiful landmark. This park overlooks the ocean and has the pineapple fountain and other fountains. It has a pier with swings and gorgeous wood plank decking. A great place for a picnic. There are also paths for walking and taking in the beautiful scenery. A must see!!!!

It's really nice there! There is a fountain that you are allowed to go in. There are big wooden swings that you can sit on and look at the beautiful view. (You may have to wait a few minutes for your turn.) You can walk and sit right by the water. There is also a shaded path with benches and... More

Nice little park with fountains, bay views, and good walks. The pineapple fountain and another fountain at the north end allows you to step in and cool off your feet. Right along side the bay/river. There is a pier you can walk out on with shaded seating and porch swings. Would be a wonderful spot for a picnic as there... More

Great place to stroll about with ice cream in hand. Fun to people watch, sit in the swing and stare in to a open sky. We try to walk to this Park every time we visit Charleston.
