Lovely and well maintained walking trail along the harbor. Historic and well kept park along with antebellum mansions and Rainbow Row's pastel colored homes. Just delightful - a must see for your visit to Charleston.

Nice walk around town, good sea breezes. The park is surrounded by classic housing and is within walking distance of Rainbow Row

A lovely shaded park with history within. Free parking surrounding, a great spot for a picnic or lunch. Amazing photo opportunities also

Walked from the cruise terminal to the park and gardens. Lots of old cannons and several statues. It's very clean and safe although dogs can run free so need to be mindful incase some are overly friendly.

This is a very popular site for all who visit Charleston. The view is spectacular. The park is really nice and the homes on the Battery are a must see for those who desire to see true southern historical homes.

Really enjoyed walking through this park. The cannons and statues they have throughout the park are neat touches. The trees and walkways make for nice scenery.

This is a lovely park with massive oak trees adorned in Spanish moss, overlooking the water. It's a great place for a walk along the Battery seawall and there are plenty of benches if you just want to take a break from touring historic Charleston.

We enjoyed a walk around. The statues and park are beautiful. The rule jewel is the many Charleston mansions that line the area. It is an easy walk from historic Charleston. We took lots of pictures. The sound of the ocean made it very peaceful.

Awesome place to visit. We walked there and back & it was great. It was nice to walk the sea wall and all the houses close by were lovely.

A lot of homes and inns are around the Battery. Few of the closest John Rutledge House and Elliott House Inn. They are within 0.5 miles. The Battery Carriage house is across the street. Very beautiful and one of the... 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.
