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.

Nice place to catch a sunset. Our first night was a disaster. Rain came. But we gave it a second try and were rewarded with a sunset. Easy to park. Quiet on a week day evening. Glad we came.

Walked off a splendid brunch at the waterfront park. Beautiful day, dog and kid friendly. Lots of space to walk, bike or jog. Fisherman on the pier enjoyed the sun and breeze. Sandy at the Visitor's Center was very hospitable. Don't miss this park when...More

Wow, how special for all family. The children (5-12) get to expell all their pent up energy and adults get to bench rest, plus the seniors get to view water. This was one of our favorite places, nicely maintained and landscaped.Well worth the stop.

Perfect for relaxing after a day in Charleston. Free family fun. Grabs some subway sandwiches or pack some snacks and chill under the bridge.

My daughter and I toured the waterfront then climbed to the top of the Ravenell Bridge. The views are awesome and great exercise with the bonus of a view.
