A pavillion and docks bordering the park and are great for fishing, and other leisurely activities. A playground area and picnic tables shaded with cabbage palms and live oaks provide an elevated view of the river.

On any day of the year, you'll see a variety of moored pleasure boats and fishing vessels; along the river's edge, Darien's colorful shrimp boat fleet offers a picturesque view to the delight of artists, photographers, and visitors.

In 2008, an additional boardwalk was completed, with lights for night fishing and benches situated for great views of the river. There is also a boat launch with plenty of parking and a popular riverfront restaurant.

Waterfront Park was once the site of the busiest port on the Southeast coast; in the 19th Century, a steady stream of ships entered the Port of Darien for cargoes of lumber, mostly yellow pine, bound for Europe.

Waterfront Park comes alive with excited crowds lining its docks during Darien's largest annual festival, The Blessing of the Fleet. Held every April, this three day event honoring Darien's shrimpers includes kid's amusement rides, street vendors, food vendors, musical entertainment and fireworks.
