As a photographer, I love the Battery and White Point Gardens and often use the location for portrait sessions. There is a gazebo in the park and the oak trees there are stunning. You can walk along the Battery for views of Rainbow Row and Charleston Harbour.

LIve Oak Trees & Gardens beautiful. View of harbor stunning. History of Charleston enriching. Liked the historical monuments in the gardens. Found the architecture and history of the homes facing the bay fascinating.

We where just in town for the weekend and only got so see a couple of things, but the Battery is hard to miss. If you drive at all around the old part of town you are going to drive around the Battery. That said its a beautiful view, of not only the bay but also the lovely homes that... More

We enjoyed the stroll through the park, but it is a long walk for a bathroom so go...before you go. Just a tip

Walked through the park on a Saturday afternoon in February, such beautiful views, both of the water and the houses. Walked along the water edge on the way down and walked on the sidewalk by the houses on the way back.Incredible to see the houses up close, each unique, one of a kind. the lawns and property around each house...

We went early in the morning and it was already pretty crowded. The monuments were nice and the view was fantastic. Worth the visit especially if you have 30 minutes to spare.

If you're looking for a relaxing, historic place to stroll in Charleston, this is the place. The park itself is lovely with grand old live oaks and beautiful plantings but on top of that it's located right on Charleston Harbor at the picturesque and historical southern tip of the peninsula. Walking along the Battery is great for visitors and locals,... More

Beautiful waterfront park in downtown Charleston. Wander down East Battery and ogle at the antebellum homes then walk through the park. From one angle you have views of stately old oaks and the water. From another angle you see the historic homes of Charleston. Great setting for a picnic or a rest after walking downtown.

While in Charleston for only a night, my family decided to walk around the area. Came across this gem across from the harbor area. It was just one of those relaxing places. The sun was setting and the locals were out playing with their dogs. The trees at this park are incredible. The way they grew is amazing and you... More
