Pretty spot amid historic homes

Cannons line the park on the water side with palm trees and plenty of historic architecture to enjoy. Azaleas are prolific in March/April and plenty of tourists too!

The battery is part of an old wall put in place for defense when Charleston was young---now it serves as an interesting boundary with the sea...you can walk along the top, see old cannons and catch a really nice breeze. On the inside of the walls are some of Charleston's most dramatic homes--gorgeous buildings with a lot of character. At... More

A nice park to go for a walk that is close to Charleston Harbor and famous houses. Many statues and monuments honor Charleston history, namely the American Revolution and Civil War. Just across the street is a sidewalk that provides excellent views of Charleston Harbor and many historic homes are nearby. People get married here all the time. A must... More

This is one of the must-see places in Charleston. Pack a picnic lunch and come enjoy the park. It is a great place to read a good book, enjoy the view of Fts. Sumpter and Moultrie, and watch the ships come into the harbor.

This is a lovely area of Charleston with stately older homes, many of them with water views. The garden area is very nice and has some shade trees, old cannons and a gazebo. Be aware - there are no restroom facilities in this area. There is on street parking.

This is a very nice area to go to relax and enjoy the views. There is a cannon but this is more of a park than a gardens. There are lots of trees. It is a nice place to walk, relax or walk your dog. The view out toward Fort Sumter is nice but to far away to see much.... More

Park is on the southern tip of the Charleston peninsula. War memorials and model canons/shot. Across from the park is a walkway along the water. I loved the Civil War memorial. Shaded park.

We enjoyed the shade of White Point Gardens! It was really hot and humid while we were there. The breeze from the water and the shade of the trees helped. Wish we had brought a blanket to spread and stay for a while!

When you're experiencing Charleston this should be on the list. The point itself is interesting but getting there is the enjoyable part. Walk the waterfront and view the most exciting architectural diversity of Charleston. Plenty of shops and important American history to be experienced. Stroll down Church street to understand what Charleston is all about. Everyone is friendly, so relax... More

My adult son and I took a guided walking tour around Charleston, including the Battery and White Point Gardens. I highly recommend having a guided tour to inform you of the stories of the houses and people who lived in them and the more recent renovators. Our tour was Ashley on the Cooper with Barry. Anyhow, the Battery and White... More
