The oak trees here were quite lovely. I liked this park more than the Waterfront, but both were nice. Great spot to catch the sunset as well!

The homes in this area will leave you wanting more and more. It was hard to stop at 200 photographs. This is why people flock to Charleston. We parked in the area for free.

We visited to simply look around and relax. We did see some dolphins swimming nearby, but just wanted to take some time to relax

The park is a beautiful place to walk. There are monuments, a gazebo, and a beautiful river front walk. There are many historic homes next to the park. Parking is hard to find, but it is worth the effort.

White Point Gardens has some very lovely trees and some nice monuments. The battery is an easy walk and quite unique. The houses along both of these are just gorgeous if you like gazing at homes and courtyards. Don't be fooled, though - the battery...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.
