“Strollin' with the flow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Ok, you will be asked by several kids to buy "grass roses". You will also have to get past the kids playing loudly in the fountain. Of course, you will also see some great things-Sailboats, dolphins, waves, Fort Sumter, and more are easily enjoyed here. A special treat is when it is sprinkling rain and you can walk under the tree canopies without getting wet. Stroll and enjoy this special place.

This is a nice park to walk thru while in Charleston. Definitely check out the famous pineapple fountain. It is really a nice spot to take pictures.

“Fun for locals AND tourists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

A nice place to walk off some of the yummy food found in downtown Charleston. Be sure to kick off your shoes and walk through the Pineapple fountain! The gardens are lovely, and the view of Charleston harbor is great.

“Too hot to enjoy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

The August heat and humidity made the afternoon visit to the park pretty uncomfortable. Children playing in the fountains had fun and I enjoyed the swing bench on the Pier once I could get into the shade.
