It is located on the Water-Front Park and quite a sight. The legend stems back to the colonial days when Charleston was much more of a shipping city. When a sea captain returned home from a long voyage he would have precious, exotic souvenirs of his voyage. The captain would spear a pineapple on his fence post to let his friends and neighbors know that he had returned safely. The pineapple earned its symbolic meaning because friends would come over for dinner that night to drink and hear the captains adventure tales of piracy, scurvy, and encounters with new lands.

While i think it’s a lovely fountain, it is just a fountain. It’s worth a walk by though because it’s in a park which is lovely as well. However, it is very busy and there were people swimming in the fountain when we went.

Stopped by on our way out of Charleston. I am so glad we did because it is so unique in it's design. It is surrounded by beautiful flower beds and lots of walkways. It's right by th eocean and offers a nice view all around.

Kids enjoyed getting their feet wet in the fountain. The adjoining park is great place for kids to run around.

Such a beautiful and picturesque fountain near the water. You can even dip your feet in it! Makes quite the splashing noise too! Very relaxing.
