A great place to park, start and finish your day. Above and beyond the historic details of the battery itself, the walk is tremendous ~ both day and night. The water view is terrific and add in beautiful home after home after stately home. A great place.

This was a great park. Nice walk. Beautiful area, we managed to snag a carriage ride in the area as well. Makes you feel like you are in the Old South.

A lot of history to be told here, but way to experience it is to go with someone who knows what happened here years ago. The park and trees are beautiful, love to make this a running destination.

Great park with great views, lined with beautiful huge historic homes. But there were very few places to sit, and even fewer of them in the shade. Waterfront Park is much nicer for leisure.

We walked around the battery and gardens after dinner. The kids enjoyed climbing on the cannons. A few statues and a nice gazebo. Takes about 30 minutes to see.

We stumbled across this area driving around Charleston at night. We parked our car in the road and walked around. This was a great park with a nice view ( minus the construction) of the water at night. There are some absolutely beautiful homes right across the street and the park itself was very well laid out and felt very... More

This is the photo you usually see when Charleston pictures are seen, a view from the street near the Battery with the luxury homes. They have some historic cannons, views of several key places, including Fort Sumter, though our view was obscured due to obstruction, and a wonderful path layout. Great place to visit in the evening, and to watch... More

We toured the Battery as part of a self-paced walking tour (we bought the tour directions at the Visitor's Center). The homes and gardens were beyond description and should be a required attraction!
