We rode the free 211 trolley to the park. As we stepped up the entrance-way, we were immediately enchanted! A covered pier/walkway was to the left with a view of USS Yorktown across the Cooper River. The sailboats dotted the river and harbor and a cruise ship tied up just upriver lent a majestic note to the entire waterfront. We simply sat for a while and took it all in before we began strolling toward the Battery. As we started our stroll, we saw the famous Pineapple Fountain in the center of the park. We visited in January so the grass was dormant and brown, the flowers were mostly dormant and the fountain was not flowing. Still it was a beautiful, peaceful park just minutes away from the shops, restaurants and general bustle of Charleston. Just to sit and gaze at the harbor, Mt Pleasant and Sullivan's Island across the Cooper River made us want to just stay forever. But we didn't, we walked a few blocks to the Rainbow neighborhood on East Bay Street and then the majestic mansions of the Battery. But that is another review! Bon Voyage!
