    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.

    Gorgeous walk along the marina
    My favorite place in beautiful Charleston where one delight follows another: a long stretch of antebellum mansions on the Battery facing the marina. Every luxurious mansion has its one face and it was really hard to choose which one is the best. I found two of my own favorites standing next to each other: magnificent white mansion with lovely small garden (private residence) and Edmondston-Alston House. After a short walk in the White Point Gardens we turned back and this time we walked not along the marina but closer to the mansions to take a close at them.

Spring Break '24 Under Construction

Don't know that we would have made the walk down from Waterfront Park, because the canon/artillery displays are blocked by construction fence on the water side. Not many decent pictures at the Battery, but the walk down past Rainbow Row and seawall were OK. At least the weather was beautiful!

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.

Lovely park down on the tip of the peninsula. Beautiful spot to hang out and relax during your day long hikes around this gorgeous city.

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!
