Decent sized public park with two fountains, where children and adults can wade around, including the famous pineapple fountain. The view includes Patriots Point where the USS Yorktown and others are moored. This is right off the heart of downtown, and the East/South Battery homes,...More

The wife and I visited the park while strolling around Charleston. This place is beautiful. It looks like something off of a movie. I liked the palmetto trees lined along the walkway. A great place for a stroll or just set and people watch.

It is a City of Charleston park, so there are definite restrictions. I'd call the city and ask. Parking can be a problem, and there are always LOTS of tourists, so any sort of privacy will be difficult. Not so sure if you... More

There are parking garages nearby. You will be very lucky to find a parking meter close by or have enough change. A quarter gets you 15 minutes. Enforced to 6:00 pm free on weekends.
