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.

This park was very enjoyable! We were visiting the area and this came highly rated on trip advisor so we checked it out. Such a great idea to put a park under a usually unusable space (under a bridge). To get here you enter by...More

There a cute little playground for the kids. There is also a pier that you can walk out on for great views of the large ships going by. And there is even a small cafe and gift shop.

This is located under the bridge and has a nice gift shop, jogging paths, childrens playground and a very clean and modern fishing pier. Fishing costs between $3 and $8 for the day and is well worth it.

The Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park was well maintained, clean and I felt safe in this environment. It is a nice place to spend a bit of time wandering about and watch the freighters come into Charleston Harbor.

Not much to say except it was very well kept and ample parking. There is a huge playground for kids.

This park is very clean, has facilities including a little restaurant (it was closed when we arrived at 9 pm) and another beautiful view of Ravenel bridge. Easy access for handicapped as well. Great for sunrise or sunset views over the inlet.

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.
