Overview

Located at the southern end of the Charleston Peninsula where the Cooper and Ashley Rivers meet, this rectangular park is a historic landmark. In the 1720s, pirates were hanged there. During the American Revolution and War of 1812, it was a fort site and called Oyster Point because of the mounds of bleached oysters created by the Indians who had occupied the area. In 1837, it became a public garden. With the Civil War, it became known as the Battery where fortifications were established. Today the beautiful park features oak trees, a gazebo bandstand, cannons and memorials. Parking around the perimeter is always free. Visitors can park and get on the city trolleys that stop there.
