We stumbled on this park on the way back to our car and I'm sure glad we did. It was a beautiful area with plenty of seating and plenty of shade. If you happen to come across it, take a walk through.

Can be difficult to find parking, however, be patient, some eventually open up. Take your camera if you want some pretty shots of the water, and boats. Additionally, the homes and gardens are beautiful. Nice place to walk at sunset.

I returned to the Battery after 50 years (saw it when I was a kid). Had to take a picture on the cannons of course. Nice place to walk to and get some exercise, harbor views. Has lots of shades and some statues and memorials.

This is not to be missed when visiting historic Charleston. Gorgeous views of the Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter. Beautiful mansions surrounding the garden. A couple of fun fountains kids can play in and a boardwalk out to the river.

This is a must see. The homes and history in the area are beyond gorgeous! Make sure your camera battery is fully charged! I go here everytime we come to visit. The home owners do an amzing job of caring for the homes.

Battery & White Point Gardens, like so much in this fine city has both a view to see and a viewpoint of the past. This is a great digital photo location.

The statues honor soldiers from both the revolutionary and civil wars, but I wouldn't allow statues honoring confederate soldiers stop me from visiting. There aren't any confederate flags, so the park is more so acknowledging its history. The houses are beautiful and worth walking through...More

One of the many beautiful areas we wanted to visit was the Battery and White Point Gardens in Charleston. Unfortunately, the free downtown area shuttle does not go by this part of town. White Point Gardens was a very nice place to walk. The live...More

Walk along the river any time. But I would not suggest after 11, just for safety's sake. The actual park area closes to keep the homeless from congregating around dark, not 5 PM.
