This park is perfect for a family, couples, friends, or solo stroll. Great place to walk your dog or have a picnic, if it's not Hazy, Hot, and HUMID! Great views of the harbor, and of course it's full of history.

Take a walk to the Battery to find some peace and experience a nice stroll. If you don't have time though, don't feel like you have to visit the Battery/park area to make your trip complete. It isn't a big deal if you miss it.

This park has sooo much history. Pirate hangings and all !! The old homes facing are just too unreal to describe and the old trees with the hanging moss. You just have to go and see

Great park on the waterfront with lots of space for every activity. Dog friendly. Accomodating to large groups as well as couples who are looking for some romantic time. Great monuments as well. Lots of history to this area. Reminiscent of Forsyth Park in Savannah.

Walk along the river any time. But I would not suggest after 11, just for safety's sake. The actual park area closes to keep the homeless from congregating around dark, not 5 PM.
