Waterfront Park — Charleston, South Carolina

SC Picture Project  |  Charleston County  |  Waterfront Park

This splash fountain can be found within the Waterfront Park, located off Concord Street in Charleston‘s historic downtown area. Both children and adults enjoy splashing in its waters during hot Lowcountry summers. The park was completed in 1990, 11 years after the city acquired land for the popular greenspace. In 2007 Waterfront Park received the Landmark Award for its distinguished landscape design, one of many design awards bestowed upon the park.

The park’s eight acres face the beautiful Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge. Another highlight of Waterfront Park is its long pier, where residents and visitors can walk, fish, picnic, or swing. The covered pier, seen below, offers bench swings for enjoying views of the park and the water. Wi-Fi access is available at Waterfront Park for those wishing to catch up on work in the serene setting.

The famous Charleston Pineapple Fountain, pictured below, is a focal point of the park and is a great place to make a wish! It is also a popular place to cool off, so don’t be surprised if you see people of all ages swimming in the fountain during Charlerleston’s blazing summer months.
