    Most beautiful US city
    Writing review in regards to not only white point gardens and battery promenade but the entire battery area. An absolutely beautiful place to walk around. The homes, window boxes, hidden gardens, simple classy Christmas decorations, churches, horse drawn carriages, fountains, gas lanterns. We put our tennis shoes on and just explored on foot. I highly recommend.

    Well worth a walk particularly to see the adjacent houses
    A pleasant stroll along The Battery and then back through the park. The highlight for us, however, was walking around the historic district adjacent to the park and admiring the architecture and unique historical Charleston houses. If you read every historic marker you could easily spend a few hours here wandering around.

    White Point Gardens Are a Charleston Highlight
    Walking White Point Gardens is certainly worth your time when in Charleston. You'll be treated to see the harbor adjacent to the historic architecture that the city is famous for. There are benches to sit on, and it's a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the city.

Very nice park. Animal friendly, plenty of seating, and plenty of shade too. Nice water views. Some people were fishing too.

It’s not a flower garden, but rather a tree - filled park near the water. The tree lined avenue gives the tourist a cool respite from the heat of the subtropical place. Full of history.

This neat-o place to walking around and check out old cannons and stuff. Not to many zombies or trolls walking. Just. Nice place to hand out and stuff.

We loved walking the neighborhoods near this park and picking out our favorite houses and gardens. The park has a lot of interesting history and old cannons which are neat, especially if you aren't planning on visiting one of the forts. Definitely recommend walking by/through!

Very beautiful gardens and views. Walking there during the day is breathtaking and at night it's a bewitching place. I can't imaging being in Charleston and not visiting.

A very nice area to visit. The park is clean with great views. The parking is also free for a limited amount of time.
