Waterfront Park is a twelve-acre park along approximately one-half mile of the Cooper River in Charleston, South Carolina. The park received the 2007 Landmark Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This award “recognizes a distinguished landscape architecture project completed between 15 and 50 years ago that retains its original design integrity and contributes significantly to the public realm of the community in which it is located.”
Waterfront Park is one of the peninsula’s most visited parks. Finished in 1990, Waterfront Park is a favorite of visitors and locals alike, offering fantastic views of the Charleston harbor. The park covers more than 1,000 feet along the coasts and allows visitors a chance to sit and relax after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. Visitors can watch sailboats cruising the waters and large ships heading in and out of the harbor.

Jim’s Accessibility Comments:
It’s a beautiful park with great waterfront views and very wheelchair friendly. The park entrance at the end of Vendue Range has 6-7 steps but about 10 feet before the entrance on the west side there’s a pathway and ramp providing full park access. There is also a wheelchair accessible restroom.
