what a beautiful park to see many people were there the day we visited the park and it didn.t feel a bit crowded. people were enjoying the nice day and the great view of the shoreline. There are many cannons and mortars on display all around the park.

This is one of the nicest parks I have ever been to. It was the first place I went when arriving in Charleston as I parked for free on the street at the edge of the park. (It is a good place to park if you want to walk the city and don't mind longer distances. I was able to... More

Beautiful and well maintained. The sites throughout the park are pretty cool and walking along the water is a plus. There is a lot to see there and in the surrounding area. A very scenic place for taking pictures.

We stayed a week at Two Meeting Street B & B; this park is adjacent ; Not particularly large or fancy gardens but seems to be a gathering site for locals and visitors with beautiful view of the river and local history. I would jog there in the morning. Beautiful and I felt safe at all times

Nice walk along the shoreline, looking at different armourments used in the past. Worth a visit and you can walk all along the battery too

Disclaimer: I got married here so I'm totally biased but Middleton Place is gorgeous. The reflection pond, the multiple huge oak trees covered in Spanish moss, even the drive to get here is picturesque. Plus there are horse-drawn carriage rides when it's not too hot and sheep grazing about on the property. Lots of history, a restaurant and the inn... More

The Battery and White Point Gardens are an integral part of Charleston history. No visit to the city would be complete without a stroll along the waterfront with the view of Fort Sumter in the distance.

The homes in this area are incredible. The park is divine. I honestly could not say enough about this area. If you love old historic homes and love history you just have to see this area. You can also see Fort Sumter from here. Truly a gem!

Very pretty gardens with the old cannons still facing out toward the water, and stacks of cannonballs in several places. It's how the city was once defended. People with their dogs, hikers, just folks hanging out. Very nice.

This part of historic Charleston is extremely scenic. The grand homes, the harbor , makes for a relaxing break from the tours
