Called the crown jewel of Mount Pleasant, Memorial Waterfront Park offers more than just your average park. Located under the grand entryway to the town, at the base of the Ravenel Bridge, this park has plenty of lawn for enjoying family picnics, a nautical-themed playground modeled after the bridge that provides shade and the boats that pass by in the harbor, and soft-serve ice cream from the River Watch Cafe. The cafe offers beautiful views of Charleston Harbor and a 1,250-foot-long pier where you can sit and swing a while. Memorial Waterfront Park is also home to the Sweetgrass Cultual Arts Pavilion, War Memorial and Visitor Center.

Good walking path and exercise potential but the views aren't that great. Charleston doesn't have the greatest city skyline and there's no beach around the river so it's just muddy water with a normal city view. I heard the fishing is good so have fun...More

The waterfront park is very safe and well maintained. There is free parking that allows you to enter the Ravenel bridge on the southeast side to use the pedestrian/bicycle walkway.

This is a very special place to visit whether by car, bike or foot. The views of the Ravenel bridge from below are outstanding, and this place provides access to going up on the bridge for stupendous views if one so desires.

This park was not only immaculate, which is almost impossible when there is a fishing pier, it was also beautiful. The staff at the welcome center was knowledgeable and pleasant. Anyone giving this place less than a perfect rating really doesn't know good from bad!

A nice park with a fishing pier. There is a nice play ground for kids 5 to 12. Clean restrooms and well maintained lawns.

Great fishing pier. It has a nice children's park too. We enjoy just walking the pier & swinging in the swings. The store is nice & everything is kept clean. This is a must see park when visiting the Charleston area. Beautiful views!
