We enjoyed walking among the rements of the "batteries", trees and statues. The view of the harbor and the shade of the trees makes this an enjoyable respite. Watch the harbor and you may find a dolphin or two making themselves known. Relaxing and beautiful

This place is a worthwhile walk, a calm and peaceful walk in the garden. Many live oaks. Just beautiful.

This is a very nice walk all the way along the bay. As you stroll, you can view the magnificent homes lining the road.

There's a wall where you can walk along the coast and see dolphins swimming. There's a nice little park with trees sprinkled with cannons and cannon balls. My son loved climbing on them. Beautiful houses to look at to boot.

When in Charleston, be sure to include this in your itinerary. This is located at the confluence of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers and provides a fun place to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Obviously, it has a historical significance as well .

Great for a walk. You get to see all the beautiful houses, and walk along the coast. Lots of history in one small place, esp with Fort Sumter in the distance.

History surrounds this beautiful park. The southern homes, beautiful oak trees the water around you and the history with cannons is truly a sight to see.

We love walking among the beautiful trees here. It is a nice place for a rest, picnic, or walk. However, as a family with young kids, someone always needs to go to the bathroom while we are there and we haven't found a nearby public...More

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.
