Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park

Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park Review

Sprawling beneath the Ravenel Bridge, this beautifully landscaped green space invites lounging on the grass with views of Charleston Harbor (unless you want to take a path up to the bridge for a stroll). Find helpful info in the visitor center, chat with Gullah locals selling their traditional baskets in the Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Pavilion, and spend a quiet moment listening to the waterfall in the Mount Pleasant War Memorial. Kids love the playground modeled after the Ravenel Bridge, and parents appreciate that it's fenced, with benches galore. A 1,250-foot-long pier stretches into the water—grab a milk shake from the Snack Bar and Tackle Shop and a seat on one of the double-sided swings to watch locals fishing for their supper.
