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 - Write a Review
A really nice place to visit on a hot day in Downtown Charleston if you can find parking there is a small parking garage around the corner from the park but it's tucked away a little bit. The Pineapple Fountain is a perennial favorite for people's various Christmas cards wedding invitations and announcements as well as graduations. The swings are difficult to get if you don't want to wait a while and expect to be bothered by Buskers caricature artist and random children trying to Peddle Sweetgrass roses
Another one of the gems downtown. A great place to spend your lunch break. Close to great restaurants and lodging.
A great walk along the water, lots of places to sit and admire the views. A few historical finds along the way as well. Bonus: towards the southern most part of the park, we saw DOLPHINS in the water ♡♡♡♡
This is a gorgeous park to walk through. It's close to the heart of the downtown tourist area and right on the water. It's generally a little cooler here since you get a great sea breeze. If you have young ones (or are young of heart) they can run around in two water fountains located here. This park is always busy but always has ample seating.
It's truly beautiful. A beautiful quiet park that's right by the see. It will really take your breath away... #InstaRalph
