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.
