Everything around here is beautiful. Wonderfully restored and expensive homes along one edge. Plenty of historic canons and statues are everywhere. Plenty of water to look out upon. You can see Fort Sumter in the harbor easily from the park. It would be a wonderful place for a run, a picnic, and a slow walk. Best of all it the... More

We met two of our tours here and experience the area by both guides. It was interesting to have two different perspectives on the area. Beautiful scenery and peaceful retreat!

Almost every travel log, brochure, or magazine article touting Charleston is going to show a photo of the battery. And White Point Garden (not Gardens) is right there on the corner. In a world where nothing is free, a walk along the harbour by the garden and past some of the most lovely homes in the south costs nothing but... More

We will be coming back to visit this spring to explore a little more. We walked waterfront at sunset so my the time we got all the way down to the park it was completely dark. We never felt the least bit uncomfortable walking after dark in a city we don't really know. Plenty of activity, and friendly people to... More
