“The Homes And Gardens Are Just Amazing!!!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We loved walking through the area and looking at the beautiful homes. We zillowed (zillow.com) one of the houses to see how much it was listed for and were not surprised to see a $8.9 million asking price.

“A great place to run or meander”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

The Battery in downtown Charleston is a must-see for anyone visiting. It's got stunning views of the water (especially at sunset) and some of the most beautiful houses in the area. The trees are lovely on sunny days, and the park begs for a picnic. On beautiful days, it can be tricky to park, but even if you can't find a spot on the main road, the neighborhoods are just as scenic. A great free activity for anyone visiting the area.

“Walk the neighborhood!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Love this park along the water in the middle of this classic historic neighborhood. Pack up a lunch and have a picnic in the park. Make sure to walk between all the streets behind the battery and see the great houses back in the neighborhood, not just the ones that front the water.

“Beautiful Place for a picnic”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

My husband and I would pack the children up and a picnic lunch and bring them to The Battery in the warm months. The park is full of huge trees that provide lots of shade. The Spanish Moss that hangs from these trees sway from the ocean breezes. The park is kept clean and the walkway along the water provides stunning views of the harbor.

“Great walking”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Great area to walk around and get some exercise or for just a leisurely stroll. There are beautiful houses that border the north end of of the park. I suggest walking from the park all the way up Church Street. BEAUTIFUL walk!
