White Point Gardens, known locally as "The Battery" is surrounded by gorgeous Antebellum homes. From there you have a view of Charleston harbor, James Island, where the first shots were fired to begin the Civil War. You also have a view of Ft Moutrie and the gorgeous Ravenel Bridge that links The Charleston Peninsula to Mt. Pleasant.

Nice place to stop and visit. Beautiful area with plenty of history. Some of the most spectacular homes in Charleston .A great view of the harbor and a good chance to see the dolphins. There is plenty of free parking on the street.

Seeing the stunning trees and inviting park to stroll hand in hand or just alone...filled with battery cannons, a gazebo, historical memorials, and the best views of Charleston Harbor, Sailboats and The Pastel revived Battery Mansions....safe, family friendly and peaceful.

Nice park to walk. Great views of the Ashley River and the beautiful historic houses of Charleston. This would be a great place to picnic and hang out with family. Great point to start a self-guided tour of Charleston.

The Battery is at the top of the peninsula that old Charlestons rests on. It juts into the harbor and was once central to the defense of the city. Today is is a tree lined park with great views of the adjacent waters.

This is a beautiful area to take a picnic, walk down the battery or for a tourist to plan a date with their significant other. As a local I do photographs in this area and I see many weddings taking place during the wedding season (three to four a day at the same time). It is typical Charleston, as a... More

The Battery and White Point Gardens are beautiful any time of the day but sunset is a magical time. Add dolphins playing in the bay to the beauty of the homes and the gardens and you have a perfect evening!

As a frequent visitor to this park it's rare not to see a man go down on one knee or some other moment of a lifetime happening here. It's a truly special place steeped in history and ...je ne sais quois. Something indefinable. Enjoy and love it like I have for my entire life.

Was able to park on the street for free and really enjoyed the old homes nearby and the statues and cannons at the park.
