The Mount Pleasant Pier at the Waterfront Park is a Charleston County Park facility. According to their website, the Pier is a “Part of the Memorial Waterfront Park complex.” It is 1,250 feet long and “stretches out into Charleston Harbor under the foot of the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge. The pier’s foundation was created from pared-down pilings from the old Silas N. Pearman Bridge.”  Located on site is the River Watch Cafe, waterfront swings and rocking chairs and picnic tables for relaxation, and you may even rent rods and reels. The park is free to visit, but there is a fee for fishing. Be advised, no dogs or leashed animals other than service animals are allowed.

Charleston County Parks also holds a Cheers on the Pier series at the Park. The series is billed as a way to “Wrap up your workday on the Mount Pleasant Pier with live music, craft beer, good friends, and a gorgeous sunset.” 

If you have a wedding coming up in your family, you might want to check out two amazing venues at the park. The Cooper River Room and the Sweet Grass Pavillion at The Park both boast amazing views of the Cooper River.

The Park is just another reason why Mount Pleasant is one of the ideal places to call home in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
