It’s situated in a remarkable spot along the Charleston Harbor and Cooper River, where there is also a breathtaking view of the Ravenel Bridge.

This is where large crowds congregate on the weekends to fish, picnic, walk, or kick back on one of the bench swings that’s provided to just sit and take in the tranquility of the surroundings.
