After a recommendation to come here from the old exchange and provost location, it was very welcoming on a 99° afternoon to be able to pop under the trees and see a nice park. The cannonade from the area have been moved to the Battery...More

Went to look at the statues but we only say two and there really wasn't much to do or see. Should have gone to Middleton Place instead.

A beautiful park at the tip of the peninsula. The oaks are maturing, and the site is peaceful, despite the reason for the site. The walk around the corner of the peninsula is a beautiful and relaxing one, and the battery park is a mainstay...More

We spent an hour or so walking along the water railing, sitting in the park talking and watching neighborhood dogs have the BEST TIME EVER romping around the park. It was a fun day!

Put on your walking shoes and explore all this river front! Lots of old homes, beautiful flowers and canopy trees and benches to sit a spell and gaze over the harbor or people watch. The breeze off the water helps make it a pleasant place...More

We always enjoy a walk along the waterfront and Battery when we arrive in town and before we leave. It is a must do!

Well, there is not much here. There are some cannons and some memorials. Some parts are shaded. Some of the memorials are actually not that old and are not really “historic.” Plan maybe 30 min and then you will want to leave.

I walked along the Battery a couple of times during my visit to Charleston. There was a nice breeze both times and the combination of historic homes on one side and water on the other side made for a very pleasant walk.

Take a walk along the east coast of the peninsula and you reach white point. The houses around here are fantastic and it's a very relaxing place to sit and read about the area if you've not been able to book a tour

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.
