360 Degrees of Beauty
Somewhere between beauty and peacefulness describes my favorite park in the Charleston area, the Pitt Street Bridge located in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant. Before the new Sullivan’s Island bridge was constructed in 1945, people had to travel through the heart of old Mount Pleasant to access Sullivan’s Island. Its hard to imagine what this busy road looked like back then knowing how tranquil and stunning this park remains today. It took me living in Charleston for 4 years and my mom purchasing a town home off of Center Street for me to discover one of the areas best kept secrets. Once I ventured to this beautiful park I remember thinking to myself why have I never heard of this place and how can I make a visit here part of my routine?
This bridge is used for a variety of leisure activities from being a running/biking destination to a place where people come to drop their kayaks or have a quiet fishing outing. Picnicking, lounging and painting are a few more activities that occur at this glorious piece of land on a regular basis... and the possibilities are endless. With panoramic views of Charleston landscape this park gives you a taste of all the different types of beauty the Low Country has to offer. The Pitt Street Bridge Park paints a picture of Sullivan’s Island, the marsh, Charleston Harbor, Downtown Charleston, The Ravenel Bridge and several of the Old Villages finest properties. Whether you want to take your pup for a walk or impress an outoftowner at a non-touristy location, the Pitt Street Bridge is sure to not disappoint.
