  • Beautiful park, right on Shem Creek, beautiful views, one of the most iconic areas in Chucktown, shrimp boats included! For many years, the area around Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant has been known for its seafood restaurants and its night life, with some great views of the creek and the marsh. Now you can also find a series of boardwalks with some wonderful views of the creek and the surrounding wetlands. Come out to Shem Creek Park and spend some time on its long boardwalks and short trails. While getting exercise, you will also see the historic creek and a variety of boats. This is a popular place for fishing as well.
  • This is a really nice park. It has a very long boardwalk to the water. It's very pretty at night. They could use more lighting near the water at night though. We go fishing and crabbing here a lot at night. We often catch a lot of crabs.
  • I didn't know this was considered a park since I just wandered over to it after eating at one of the nearby restaurants. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful stroll down the boardwalk and the dock at the end is a great place to sit and take in the views. There are several uncovered places to sit along the way, then at the very end is a large shaded area with seating. Worth a stop if you're in the area, or even if you're not!
  • It was a very nice walk. Hard topark in but worth it if you are up for a nice river walk!
  • It's a very pleasant place to take a stroll. The midpoint which is called Crab Island has, wait for it, lots of adorable little crabs scurrying around the place. The are lots of pelicans lazily strutting across the spot as well, perfect for selfies. Ha! All in all, it's a great place to take people for the day (seafood, kayaking, walking).
