We did a self-guided walking tour and passed through here. Climbed on the seawall for a view of the harbor, and enjoyed looking back at the historic homes. The "gardens" are basically grass, but it's a nice green and quiet space for a rest.

Fun to see all of the cannons and great photo opportunities by water and by/on the cannons. A good place to just stroll through or stop and spend time.

Picture the cannons firing on Ft Sumter from this point. Today's battery is for frisbee throwing, bicycling, jogging and sauntering. Glimpse the occasional dolphin in the harbor.

History galore about this location. Hangings of pirates, defenses of the city and civil war stories. The beautiful view of the harbor is spectacular. Take some time to walk around and soak in the atmosphere of what it was like here long ago.
