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.

Quaint Park located at the Battery. Great oak trees provide shade, gazebo offers great backdrop, statues and cannons will delight kids and history buffs alike. **advice - no bathroom here but one is within about a 5-7 walking distance at the Hazel playground**
Lovely historic park. The gazebo was, if I remember correctly, used in the execution process for pirates. It's truly a lovely place to take a stroll. Not as many tourists in this area. Well shaded walking paths and benches with great view of the harbor. I highly recommend this area for getting some work or reading done outside in the fresh air.
