Trip Planner: USA / South Carolina / Coastal South Carolina / Charleston / Battery & White Point Gardens
Once a weapon-filled defensive site, Battery & White Point Gardens is now designed for peace and tranquility. As you walk through the pleasant park and gardens, you can examine cannons, statues, and other monuments, including a bronze bust of famous poet, novelist, and historian W.G. Simms. Look for the commemorative marker for a pirate captain and his crew who were hung at the site about 300 years ago. All your wandering will be in the shadow of many large antebellum houses, surrounded by oak trees and overlooking the Charleston Harbor. The gardens are suitable for picnicking, recreation, photography, and other leisurely activities. Put Battery & White Point Gardens and other Charleston attractions into our Charleston road trip planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.
Battery & White Point Gardens reviews
A very nice area to visit. The park is clean with great views. The parking is also free for a limited amount of time.

I can never visit Charleston without a walk through the park and along the Battery. even in the heat of the summer, the Live Oaks provide a welcome retreat from the hot sun.

Great place to walk, bring your dog, stroll or just pick a spot and read or have a picnic. Views of the ocean, sidewalks everywhere. I highly recommend if you have some free time in Charleston
Beautiful garden! Very peaceful place for you to just chill and relax. There are historical statues you can view and appreciate. It is next to the battery as well for you to enjoy the ocean.
