Recently visited the Shem Creek Park and was pleasantly surprised at the new addition of the longer boardwalk. This is a great area for all ages and also walking distance to some of the best restaurants in the area.

I have driven past this park so many times and not even known it! One day I saw the sign, had some time and made the stop. This park is awesome. There is a dirt path and small bridges that take you through the marsh out to a fishing pavilion at the opening of Shem Creek. Here visitors can watch... More

Awesome restaurants overlooking the inlet with the fishing trawlers and recreational boat traffic provided a pleasant dining experience. Taking a walk out along the boardwalk and through the tidal swamp was a great walk after the meal.

Great mix of restaurants and beautiful boardwalk walking trail. Bonus is when the dolphins come out. One of my favorite places to go in Mt. Pleasant.

This was so nice. Plenty of free parking. One of the nicest board walks I've seen. There are plenty of restaurants if you're hungry, or have a thirst. I was hoping to see a dolphin, but it was not to be. I would recommend this place to anyone. Yes, it is handicap accessible.

A great get-away with the feel of an old fishing village. Just sitting on the water enjoying the view and watching the boats is relaxing and enjoyable.

This is an off the beaten path, away from downtown. It is peaceful and a beautiful place to watch the sunset!! The park is a walker's delight as it provides many boardwalks to traverse.

Great place to walk and view the marsh and creek. Good animal spotting. You can fish at the end. Fun place for a picnic with the family.

The boardwalk and scenery from it were most welcome after a nice meal next door. The boardwalk is in excellent condition. We enjoyed watching people fishing, and one small boy getting excited at his catch of a red fish. We were excited ourselves when we saw a dolphin. Very relaxing. So nice that this is here.
