The park's eight acres face the beautiful Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel bridge. Another highlight of Waterfront Park is its long piers, where residents and visitors can walk, fish, picnic or swing.
Waterfront Park is one of the peninsula's most visited parks. Finished in 1990, Waterfront Park is a favorite of visitors and locals alike, offering fantastic views of the Charleston harbor. The park covers more than 1,000 feet along the coasts and allows visitors a chance to sit and relax after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. Visitors can watch sailboats cruising the waters and large ships heading in and out of the harbor.
Old-fashioned park benches dot the park, and family-sized swings offer a fun way to spend a relaxing afternoon together. A large rectangular lawn provides a great spot for picnics and sunning. Walkways are ideal for strolling, and two large fountains make for fantastic places for children to play, splash and cool off. It is one of the parks that boasts floral displays throughout the year. The fountains light at night, offering a truly spectacular scene along the harbor's waterfront. The park is also centrally located near The Market and other great shopping and sightseeing areas. This park has free Wi-Fi Internet access thanks to Google and the Charleston Digital Corridor.
