Description:

Called the crown jewel of Mount Pleasant, Memorial Waterfront Park offers...

Called the crown jewel of Mount Pleasant, Memorial Waterfront Park offers more than just your average park. Located under the grand entryway to the town, at the base of the Ravenel Bridge, this park has plenty of lawn for enjoying family picnics, a nautical-themed playground modeled after the bridge that provides shade and the boats that pass by in the harbor, and soft-serve ice cream from the River Watch Cafe. The cafe offers beautiful views of Charleston Harbor and a 1,250-foot-long pier where you can sit and swing a while. Memorial Waterfront Park is also home to the Sweetgrass Cultual Arts Pavilion, War Memorial and Visitor Center.

The park is very well kept, and in a gorgeous setting. We enjoy going as a family, and our kids, ages 6 and 8, still enjoy the wonderfully designed and safe play area. It's nice to have the pier available, as well as the pier store, to purchase a sandwich, a smoothie, a local gift, bait...even a cold beer. The... More

My son brought me here. Wow, so very nice. Nice open field, nice walking path, nice playground, and the dock and pier seemed to just go on forever. Beautiful setting out into the river, under the bridge, and looking across to downtown Charleston. So nice.

The park and playground are next to a Visitor Center that has information about Mt. Pleasant and Charleston. Very clean and friendly. Lots of parking-some even in the shade of the bridge! You can access the walking trail over the bridge from the parking lot. Many hotels close by as well as Patriot's Point. All free!

On a recent trip, we stopped over on a Friday evening. They had an outdoor movie event going on. The pier was really nice. My wife and I could of sat on the pier and enjoyed the rest of the evening. Though, my son was antsy and wanted us to get back to the movie. Anyhow, it was just a... More

Beautiful area to go for a stroll and relax! The views are lovely and a great place to take pictures or simply enjoy. Plenty of seating and benches along the way if needed.

It's a great place to walk. Even on a super hot day there's the shade from the bridge and usually a breeze. Great view. You can grab a pretty good soft serve ice cream or toss a line in the water. Yup. Bored? Why? Put a pair of flips on and head toward the river.

This park has something for all families. There is a nice playground for younger kids. Enjoy a nice walk on the pier or take time to try your luck at fishing. Don't forget the gift shop and snack bar. They have wonderful sandwiches, delicious milkshakes and smoothies.
