Stopped here after checking out rainbow row. It's a beautiful view of the bridge and the water. Great place to walk around. Luckily the weather was great so it was a nice place to kill some time.

This is something you can probably do on your own as a tourist in downtown without paying for a guide, Kinda hard to miss on the waterfront. Nice to sit in the swings and and feel the ocean breeze.

My girlfriend and I had planned a girls weekend for some time in Charleston. It was wonderful and we were able to walk most places we planned to visit. Riley Waterfront Park was close enough to the Open Air Market to walk and just enjoy the sights and sounds. I would recommend it and go there again.

Beautiful park. It has a pier with benches and swings. Nice views of Ft Sumter and the many islands and ships in the harbor. Fun place to spend an hour or two.

The pineapple fountain located in this park is a Charleston icon. There is also another water fountain that children may play in. Walk down the small pier and enjoy the bench swings. Very nice park!

Nice park and pier. Large water fountain for pictures. Long pier extending into the harbor/river. They have wonderful swings available to sit in ad just relax. The pier is large and even with a lot of people there is plenty of room to move about.

Sad that so many homeless are represented in the park. Makes the visit distracting. Good views of the fort and an aircraft carrier was visible across the river. Nice water fountains for picture taking.
