  • One of the best places in Charleston! I've been here for many events (WEZL Party in the Park, Shagging on the Cooper, movies in the park, etc). Always a fun, relaxing experience. I have photographed many gorgeous sunsets here. Great place for a stroll, bike ride, picnic, fishing at any hour.
  • One of my favorite places in Mt. Pleasant. Great views of the Downtown Charleston and the Charleston Harbor. Wonderful partially shaded playground for the kids. Also, provides access the Cooper River Bridge (short walk).
  • Nice park right below the Ravenel bridge. There is a long pier with plenty of fishing access. Also a great place to go catch the sunset.
  • I love this place! It's great for kids and weddings and fishing off of the pier, it closes at 11pm though for you night owls. Also you can catch many unique Pokemon at this location, I believe there are at least five poke stops there and a gym :)
  • Beautiful Park! Great place to get a run in, walk the dog, or fish off the pier. Theres also a playground that kids can play on along with a beautiful view or the Atlantic
