Battery Park is bordered by water and grand old antebellum mansions. The park is well shaded and a good place for a leisurely evening walk to a fitness run. Historic markers and cannons are sprinkled around the park. Captured pirates were hung in the park to warn others to avoid a life of plunder. Is the place haunted by old... More

Not busy, open environment, and parking was no trouble when we visited. The trees are beautiful and if your lucky you'll be able to see dolphins swimming. Also has a rich heritage and amazing architecture.

Beautiful trees and area. I just wish the construction wasn't every where. Otherwise great place for a relaxing stroll and cute pictures!

The park is nice, but I was expecting some kind of flowers as it is called a garden. I was disappointed that it's only green space. The cannons are interesting. The mansions around the park are lovely. The view is nice.

This is another great place to walk around. There are really big old trees all over the park. And lots of fun monuments to discover. The homes along the park edges are beautiful. Gives you a nice feel for Charleston.

The Battery is a Must See when in Charleston. Lots of 'Eye Candy' here. No flies, imagine that !! Take a horse drawn Carriage ride and you will be very impressed with the History given by very knowledgeable drivers. Clean streets and just a lovely History tour. You can just imagine how pleasant the life style was in Charleston at... More

I guess I was expecting more, but it was a park on the water. ok, it had lots of shade trees and made a good rest spot for the bike ride through town. Would have been nicer if we could have found somewhere anywhere around it to get a drink of water.

It's about a mile walk back into downtown but it's a beautiful walk and the parking is free. Beautiful view of the harbor with great photo opportunities with fountains, trees, cannons, and a gazebo. Nice evening walk for couples.

Quite beautiful, historic, and fun to walk around. Ask in one of the hotels/B&Bs for some history as well. And great views. Nice place to run also!

Loved being able to show my kids history from my home state. Loved the beautiful homes near the park and the incredible view from the shoreline. Great way to end the day.
