Create an itinerary including 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.

  • The walk is beautiful and historic. Look for Rainbow row ( a group of colorful houses) The cannons and mortar were interesting to see the sizes of. It was nice to walk a long the ocean.

  • The park was beautiful and shady, but not much else to say about it. It's just a park as far as we saw. Somehow I expected gardens with flowers.

  • Looks beautiful, needs lights for the night time though
  • This peaceful spot is definitely worth a visit. Hang out in the shade of ancient live oaks and people watch. Read placards and learn some local history. Majestic antebellum homes to drool over as you walk along the waters edge.
