Yes please in Charleston Or the greater Charleston area to walk your dog let him runoff leash if they’re able to without acting crazy.Nice breeze from the river! Boardwalks along & over the marsh, #2 piers, cool playground lots of coveted picnic space & bench swings for couples. And THE VIEWS This is me and my dog Lucy’s favorite place. I can wear her out Fast. She likes it when it rains and the grass is soggy & slops it up! Even better... this place is never that crowded & People walk the outside perimeter, fish on piers AND I hardly see anybody with dogs out here. There must be about a 200 X 50 yards of freshly cut grass in the middle That the dog can run crazy and he can play ball and throw frisbee, etc. I like to go around 4:20. Love going to the beaches but this place has a lot of perks. No sand, lots of spacious, green grass, views & breeze. It’s a killer place And surprise not a lot of people out there when I go. Check out all the LOCAL shops, cafés, bars, breweries. GOOD PEEPS😀…

Love stopping by and enjoying a stroll along the riverfronts of some of the iconic cities of the USA. Charleston is very historical and deserves to be on your wish list when traveling in the south !!

The memorial is a tribute planned by military veterans & the City of North Charleston to all the men & women the United States & civilian who labored at the naval base for 95 years. An open pavilion has a vertical curved wall with multiple panels about the history from its creation in 1901 to the base's 1996 closing. There are five lighted flag poles that feature flags of the Unites States, South Carolina, U.S. Navy, North Charleston & the U.S. Marine Corps. On the southern end is a curved open memorial made of photographs -one large photo with several smaller photos that combine for the larger's time period. From the left are 1901-1914 Before WW 1, 1914-1918 WW 1, 1918-1939 Between The Wars, 1939-1945 WW 11, & 1945-1974 The Cold War. Just a short walk are three metal model ships- The Destroyer-Gray Hounds Of The Fleet, The Landing Craft-The Gator Navy and The 41 For Freedom-Navy's Nuclear Submarines. Two statues homer the navy. The 'Homecoming-the Father, Mother & son, in a tight family embrace and the Lone Sailor- waiting to be shipped put. A water fountain with six steams of water shooting upward for children to play under or run through. . I watched young lad -5-6-run back & forth in the rain while his mother looked on smiling. The memorial is located next to the River Front Park. Parking is about 200 yards away. . The Charleston River faces the memorial. A walkway of cement or sand/gravel goes from the southern end to the north. If wet take the cement path. The memorial should take 30 minutes at most. I was rained out twice for a total time of about one hour. This time included photographing all the memorial. Not far from the curved wall are restrooms. I was not disappointed , however photos one web site gave the impression of being longer in length & more naval items to view. I visit is still highly recommended, only on a dry day.I think any military veteran of any U.S. branch would enjoy a visit, no matter the memorial's size. I was the only visitor each time.…

This is a former Navy base with some interesting information on plaques and a war memorial. Unfortunately, most of the boardwalk is closed for repairs, so you can't get as much of the nice water views as you would expect.

We weren't able to walk very far the day that we went because of repairs on the boardwalk and other areas of the park. It's a former navy base, so there were statues and a memorial wall. There were some nice views of the Cooper River.
