"The main attraction in downtown Charleston, The Battery is where you'll find Charleston's most luxurious homes and a great park with harbor views. My suggestion: if you're already downtown, don't drive there. Meander down King or Meeting Streets or any side street that seems pleasing; south of Broad you'll see some of the best homes and gardens in downtown Charleston. After you see the park, be sure to walk up East Bay Street a little way to see the ever popular Rainbow Row."

"Battery Park (also known as The Battery), which includes a park known as White Point Gardens, is a landmark promenade in Charleston, South Carolina famous for its stately antebellum homes. First used as a public park in 1837, it became a place for artillery during the American Civil War. It stretches along the shores of the Charleston peninsula, bordered by the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. Fort Sumter is visible from the Cooper River side and the point, as is Castle Pinckney, the World War II aircraft carrier USS Yorktown (CV-10), Fort Moultrie, and Sullivan's Island."

Charleston Wedding In September
Charleston   |   September, 2009   |   Attraction

"The Battery, otherwise known as “Battery Park”, is a popular park located in downtown Charleston where the Cooper and Ashley Rivers meet. With great views of Fort Sumter, Castle Pinckney, and Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse, the park is a great place to come to see the sights of Charleston from a distance. It is also a wonderful place to learn more about Charleston’s history, with its statues, monuments, and old cannons and cannonballs that children love to climb on. In the 18th century, heavy rocks were used to fortify the shores of the Cooper River. That fortification became the famous promenade known as the High Battery, one of the best places to stroll in the park. The Battery first became a public park in 1837, and was also used as a place for artillery storage during the American Civil War. Now the Battery hosts a variety of attractions. White Point Gardens, named because of the piles of bleached oyster shells that comprise its grounds, is a luscious park with large oak trees, a bandstand, and various memorials. The park also is home to some of the most lavish houses in all of Charleston, including the Edmonston-Alston House, the Calhoun Mansion, and the Palmer Home (Pink Palace)."

"The Charleston Battery. This is a small park and has views all around the peninsula. Walk from it up the east side to connect with Waterfront Park."

Emily and James's Wedding
Charleston, SC   |   June, 2009   |   Restaurant

"White Point Gardens, also known as the Battery, sits at the southernmost point of the Charleston peninsula, where the Cooper and Ashley Rivers let out into the Atlantic Ocean. Originally opened in 1837 as a public park, the Battery was fortified during the Civil War to protect the city against Union troops. Kids will love climbing on the disabled Civil War-era cannons that still stand along the edges of the park. Tourists and locals seem to agree that the Battery is the city's best spot for strolling. Maybe it's the live oaks drooping with Spanish moss, the pleasant ocean breezes, or the lovely views of Charleston Harbor. The Battery is also home to some of the city's most lavish residences, including the historic Edmonston-Alston house, the Calhoun Mansion and the Palmer Home (also known as the Pink Palace)."
