Local mom Jackie Vest reviews Mt. Pleasant Memorial Park and Pier. This park features an unique suspension bridge themed playground under the Ravenel Bridge.
Looking for something fun and FREE to do in Charleston? Take your kiddos to a suspension bridge playground and walk along a pier in search of dolphin!
Tucked under the gorgeous Ravenel Bridge in Charleston sits a fun playground themed just like the iconic bridge itself. The fenced-in playground has a nautical design, complete with cable stays just like the bridge which towers high above. It also boasts a brand new toddler area designed like the flight deck of the Yorktown at Patriots Point! There are jogging and bicycling paths which weave through a manicured park right along the Cooper River, making this a favorite stop!
Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park & Pier
Jutting out from the park is the 1,250 ft Mt. Pleasant Pier which was built on the old pilings from the Pearman Bridge. It is the longest pedestrian pier in the southeast and offers panoramic views of Charleston Harbor. Bring along some quarters for the kids to place in the binocular machines located along the pier. We were able to gaze upon the Charleston skyline, spy the aircraft aboard the carrier at Patriots Point, and watch a school of dolphin play in the river. There are several benches along the pier and a huge covered pavilion at the end which made a great spot for a picnic.
Located at the pier entry is a shop where you can get fishing and tackle supplies, souvenirs, ice cream, or a tasty sandwich.
