Although I was on a bus guided tour we did stop here that I remember. So much history in this ("Holy") City that borders on "jaw-dropping". Antiquity and patrimony of the US are so connected to these sites and it is our duty to pay...More

Lots of monuments in this park, not all of them related to the Civil War. It was nice to see the cannons as well as the beautiful homes surrounding the park.

We biked through the battery gardens on several occasions during our stay in Charleston. Great place to people watch and take photographs.

The dogs that we saw knew each other as did their humans. It was a nice park to visit at the battery. Good view of the bay. We saw it on the bus tour, and we visited on our own. Parking is hit or miss.

Easy stroll around a lot of battle related monuments and ordnance. Beautiful old oak trees everywhere, and old fashioned gazebo in the middle of the park, and beautifully restored homes along one side of the park. Great views of the water in all directions.

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.
