Pineapple Fountain – Charleston, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Charleston County Photos  |  Pineapple Fountain

The Pineapple Fountain is a focal point of the Charleston Waterfront Park, which people have been enjoying since it opened in 1990 – the spring after Hurricane Hugo. Pineapple motifs are common in Charleston and represent hospitality.

The park’s eight acres face the Charleston Harbor and Ravenel Bridge. The park also features a larger splash fountain, where children of all ages play during hot Lowcountry summers. Children also frequently splash in the Pineapple Fountain itself, where wading is not only permitted but welcomed. (Note to grown-ups: You’re allowed, too!)

Pineapple Fountain – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Pineapple Fountain, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
