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.

Had a nice morning at the park, enjoying the playground, walking on the pier and having a picnic in the shade. Nice park for all ages to enjoy, with convenient and free parking.

This is a hidden gem! The park is quiet with few visitors. The pier is beautiful. You can get excellent pictures off the pier as the view is amazing.
