I always enjoy walking around the Battery and White Point Gardens. The surrounding houses are just gorgeous and the park is so peaceful with nice breezes and shade on hot southern days. You can often catch a glimpse of a couple getting married in the gazebo in the center to brighten your day. There is also free parking around the... More

Walking on thé battery was a daily activity during our 4 day stay in Charleston. The old homes are so impressive. The history of thé battery is amazing. Gorgeous view of thé harbor.

This is a beautiful park to visit and is one of the locations from which the Confederate States of America newly formed army fired upon Fort Sumter. Along with large Spanish moss covered live oaks there are several memorials including one dedicated to the brave defenders of Charleston during the war of northern aggression.

You must walk along the Battery and see the old homes kept in such great shape. It will take you back to old Charleston. Quite lovely.

We saw dolphins from the walkway, then entered the nice shade of the park to rest after our morning walk. It's a perfect location between the waterfront and the mansions. Interesting to note that it is also designated as an off-leash area for dogs although it is not fenced in. We didn't see any dogs while we were there though.

The park is great. If you run or just walk it is a great place. The park is open and fun to sit and watch the water and people. Again the price is right FREE. Can never visit the Battery too much. There are statues and signs throughout the park that give history. The only draw back is no public... More

A great place to spend an hour or two. Just stroll around the gardens and walk up and down the battery. Do a little research first or take a guide book along. Great history. Stroll by the beautiful historic homes along the battery and up King, Meeting, East Bay and Church Streets.
