Charleston Waterfront Park - Review

This is rated as the most beautiful park in the equally beautiful city. The place where the park is situated was once the centre of maritime trade in the city. The whole square got devastated in a painful fire tragedy and everything went grey. After this the state authorities took up serious initiatives to restore the former glamour of such an important landmark. The people hired the best architects and the work began. It took a long time and this is what resulted as a “fruit of patience”.

The park has been awarded with the “Landmark Award” in 2007 and also the most prestigious award from the National trust for Historic Preservation. The name waterfront comes from the fact that the park is just on the banks of the Cooper River. The green stretches with the most spectacular view of the crystal clear water of the river looks amazing. There is no particular time when the place does not feel good to be in. Probably the most peaceful place in the city, you can forget all your tensions and refresh yourself for a fresh tomorrow.

Charleston Waterfront Park, Charleston Reviews

  • Great place for some family time! The kids love playing in the fountains, feeding the seagulls, and running through the park with other children. For the adults the bench swings are a relaxing and romantic respite after walking around downtown Charleston. The view can't be beat with a variety of ships and sailboats always in sight. The patient and the lucky are often rewarded with aquatic wildlife sightings that include bottlenose dolphins and harbour seals. The Joe Reilly Waterfront Park is definitely a must see when planning a visit to the Holy City of the South.

  • The lush landscape is absolutely gorgeous with tons of green space, huge trees shading the walk ways, and sitting areas there. It was such a wonderful site to see the children running and playing in the splash water falls and fountain. Watching the cruise ship take off from the waters edge was also cool. Dogs were also allowed to be on the greens. Joyful area.

  • This is a great place to rest from walking all over town. Beautiful trees with Spanish moss and squirrels leaping from branch to branch provide wonderful shade. A cool breeze coming off the water is refreshing and revitalizing. It may not be part of the historic district, but the houses and buildings surrounding the park reflect Charleston's historic charm and ambiance. There are views of the ships in the harbor and lots of wildlife. A quick stop here energized my wife and I to continue our tour walking tour of Charleston.

  • Nice relaxing area to visit in Charleston. There are 2 nice fountains that were very popular with local children for cooling off in. There is a nice walk way that is well shaded and has plenty of benches. The pier is also nice. There is a good size of the pier that is shaded and has picnic tables and benches. Lovely views of the waterfront. The area was well maintained.

  • A must go when in Charleston! The ocean walk is scenic with plenty of shaded areas, benches, and swings under the pavilions. The pineapple fountain is a must-see and great for picture taking. Street musicians often play beneath the pavilions. Gets a little chilly and breezy on the water in late winter/early spring. Free shuttle service to and from the waterfront park and other attractions along the route.
