“History ”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

There are a lot of large cannons and a few statues in this park. Go along and read the placards around or stop here on one of the many tours to learn the history. Well shaded area to sit and feel the breeze off the ocean.

“Great view to relax.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

The area is actually really nice. I like they have the statues with history around it. And the canons are a great place to take photos, but I did notice that there a lack of seats to sit at if you just want to watch the view of the water. If they had that opportunity, the rating would definitely be a 5/5.

“Battery point”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great location to take pictures of beautiful old homes. There is also a great view of the harbor. As we were driving around we discovered that there was a Coast Guard Station at the point. Cool!

“Nice Area to sit and look at the water”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The White Point Gardens are a nice area (shaded which is a MUST). There are a few benches where you can sit and enjoy the shade after a long day. Other than that, there is nothing really to do there or look at. Also, there is no store/vendors near by to sell water/snacks, etc. That would have been nice to be able to buy a water or soda and relax here.
