Pretty views and nice park

We visited the park by pedi-cab, a very nice way to travel. It was attractive and pleasant to see both the water the the lovely historic homes.

The Battery Park is a very pretty park at the south end of Charleston. We walked there and it was well worth it. The view over the river and towards the forts was terrific. You get a good view towards historic Fort Sumter.

Battery Park is historical in the defence of Charleston during the Civil War. White Point Gardens, Which is a part of Battery Park has beautiful trees that look absolutely sculpted. Nice park for both couples and family. Put this park on your list of places to visit in Charleston, especially if it's your first visit.

Beautiful park with moody live oak allee and pretty flowers and fountains, harbor view, and stately historic homes. The Pineapple fountain is a must-see. However, best wishes accessing the area. Tried visiting March 2015 on a nice day--crowded with too many outdoor enthusiasts on the sidewalks - bicyclists, walkers of multiple purebred dogs, power walkers, joggers and stroller rollers. UGH!... More

There are no public restrooms. This site has lovely shaded space with the breeze off the local waters. In April, the nocturnal cranes are nesting in the trees prior to returning to their marshlands. What a bonus!

I think driving to this park and walking around you get a feel for the history of Charleston. Mature trees, the views, the buildings all speak of a rich American past. It's tedious to drive to the tip of Charleston, due to narrow lanes and touristy gimmicks along the way, but I had no trouble finding parking once there. Don'... More

This park is also called "The Battery." It's at the tip of the peninsula and has the Ashley River on one side, and the Cooper on the other. I didn't see gardens, but the live oaks were beautiful, and the walk along the water was very enjoyable. And the homes? Amazing.

Water on one side, beautiful homes on the other, a must see during your visit to Charleston. Locals visit regularly as well as visitors, there is some street parking available and the famous old houses to visit are just a few blocks away.

At the break of day, I donned my walking shoes. I walked Meeting Street until I hit ( I walked East Battery, Broad Street, Church Street and Elliott Street not in that sequence.) water. The few people on the street, for the most part, unhesitatingly uttered a “good morning”. I walked the boardwalk at White Point Garden. Being a snow... More

It is a very strange feeling to walk through a green placid park at the end of a city and see cannons. Couples are holding hands and moms push baby prams where 150 years ago carnage was being delivered from these very weapons. It is easy to get very philosophic in this part of town.
