We found this by accident after eating at a restaurant nearby. We wanted to see the water and saw all the kids playing in the fountain. It was a nice place to cool down on this 95 degree day!

It is a City of Charleston park, so there are definite restrictions. I'd call the city and ask. Parking can be a problem, and there are always LOTS of tourists, so any sort of privacy will be difficult. Not so sure if you... More

There are parking garages nearby. You will be very lucky to find a parking meter close by or have enough change. A quarter gets you 15 minutes. Enforced to 6:00 pm free on weekends.
