Theres just a small block of grass and shaded areas to have lunch under oak trees. On the side there are cannons. There's really nothing much to talk about, but it's cute and nice to look at the water.

This was a pretty park right on the water. However, it only took a few minutes to walk through. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful!

The views of the water and the huge houses here is something to see. Apparently the name comes from the white oyster shells that were dumped here historically.

I love this side of downtown Charleston...it's so calm and peaceful and all the trees and statues reflecting the history of the area are just overwhelming and make for a grand place to walk and rest and just take in nature...with kids, animals, your family...More

We drove past, with the top down, on a weekend night, after dinner. The park is gorgeous and desolate at night. The cannons and trees are enchanting and the ornate, grandiose mansions lining the park add to it's charm and beauty. Strolling at night may...More

gorgeous view of the Charleston Harbor. The park and gardens are beautiful with a gazebo (there was a small wedding while we were there) and cannons set around the park.

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.
