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.

Do walk/bike/run the bridge for the exercise as well as the views! Especially the view of the Atlantic and the Light House over Mt.P. ,Sullivan's Island and The I of Palms. Then be sure to follow the pedestrian access around to this park with the long pier under the bridge for an up close water view of the harbor, City... More

We met family here and walked the pier. The views are beautiful above and below. Looking up at the Ravenell Bridge is cool. They have a snack bar, gift shop, and clean restrooms.

Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park is one of the star attractions of Mount Pleasant. You get a great view of Charleston. There is an excellent playground and the wonderful Lowcountry Basket Museum.

A beautiful low country park offering views of Charleston and the harbor. Well groomed and maintained. The county parks systems offers fishing licenses, concerts, yoga on the green and more. A nice concession stand is on the pier and the paths are pedestrian and biking friendly.

Nice walk -- no cost. If you are hunting pokemon, make sure to walk over by the visitors center and hit the poke stops (3-4 of them) before walking down the pier. Lots of people enjoying fishing, but I didn't see them catching much fish.
