Great scenery and a lovely walk along the wall over the water. The mansions along the park are out of a storybook! Walk in during the day and then come back at night when the houses are lit up for Christmas! Parking can be challenge. No car idling allowed.

This is a beautiful park at the tip of Charleston. There is a great view of the water. It has beautiful large oak trees covered with Spanish moss. There are several statues and a lot of battle history. I took many beautiful pictures of the water, the trees, the statues, cannons, etc. The walk ways are wonderful to follow and... More

It actually is a really nice park to visit. In the park itself the paths are wide and there are various monuments and other points of interest you can look at. On the other side of the street is a board walk that takes you along the water. You need to make sure you have nice weather though when you... More

So this is basically a park, not even a big one, located at the tip of Charleston overlooking the water. There isn't much to it but it is hard to deny the beauty and peacefulness. We strolled through near sunset. The moss-laden oaks over the green grass and monuments with the cool breeze coming off the river. The beautiful sunset... More

I walked the boardwalk all the way down from the Water Front park and discovered this place, Beautiful shaded park with views of the Cooper River - lots of really big oak trees that I absolutely loved, plenty of benches, monuments/statues scattered throughout the walking paths and only steps away from more tourist attractions (Waterfront Park, Rainbow Row, water taxi...

A walk along the Battery is a nice diversion. It is nice to just stroll and see the waterfront and the old homes along the way. Well worth an hour or so. Stayed at the wonderful B&B, 15 Church Street, on our last visit two years ago on Easter weekend and went to the Easter sunrise service on the Battery.... More

This park sits at the end of the peninsula. There is an elevated promenade from which you can look out over the harbor. White Point Gardens is the park that is adjacent to the promenade. There are a few cannons and a few monuments.

Not really a park - there is hardly anything to see, beside some nice old trees and the view on the river. It is better to walk through the streets around instead of going there. Park is also very small - in case you don't want to sit there and read a book, you are done in 5-10 minutes...
