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.

Waterfront Park during normal days is a place to relax; watch ship comings and goings; look for wading birds hunting in the marsh and seabirds doing the same over the open water; fish for the elusive "big one"; and generally lay back. It hosts concerts...More

Great little park and pier. You can view USS Yorktown and Charleston across the bay. If you have the time you can hire a fishing rod at the pier shop and fish from the pier with the locals. There is a playground for young children.

Hi, Cathy. What would you like to know about this attraction? What hotel did you stay at? My husband is in a wheelchair and we were looking for a hotel that is within walking distance so we could go out on the pier in the evenings.
