Reviewed 15 April 2014

Located under The Arthur Ravenal Bridge, there's a place you can,walk, fish, eat and relax. Great playground for children 5 to 12, while I was there there were a couple of people flying kites.

“What a wonderful walk.”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

My husband & I walked down the pier. It was beautiful. There's also ample parking. The water is beautiful, the views are great & the boards themselves are easy to walk on. Even the people we passed all seemed calm & serene. We visit Mt. Pleasant often & I'm looking forward to another wonderful walk on the pier.
