Cool pit stop on the entrance or exit to Victoria park. Stop by if you can for a quick photo with cannons, and learn a little about how Charlottetown used to be defended

The cannons are mildly interesting. The history is ho-hum. The handrail and the few steps up to the "lookout" are not safe and in need of repair.

Small parking lot so good luck finding a spot but the battery is well taken care of and nice to view. Lots of signage. Great place to stop and view the bay and stretch your legs. Nice running trails along bay.

On the edge of Victoria Park, very near Government House, Prince Edward Battery offers some very interresting information about the history of Charlottetown. Especially appreciated by history buffs.

Great historical stop on the harbour boardwalk. Take the time and make sure to read all the historical signage. Great stories and a lot more history there than even the locals know. Very informative and worth a short visit if even just for the great views of the City/Harbour....ideal picture taking spot. Excellent sunrise/sunset vantage point for nice shots.

Prince Edward Battery is located within Victoria Park in southern Charlottetown. The actual area of the battery is fairly small, but it's still worth a stop. You can view the stone magazine where ammunition was kept, as well as a row of cannon facing the harbor. The most interesting thing about it is walking along the battery, imagining the strategic...

Prince Edward Battery seems to either be part of, or certainly adjacent to Victoria Park, Charlottetown, PEI. There are many "stations" around with placards describing how the battery was built, how it was manned, who ran it and when, and how the coastal defenses worked. Very interesting and certainly worth a visit, if only to see the old cannons. Clean... More

We stopped here for the view primarily and then began to read each of the well designed information boards on the platform. You can learn a lot about Canadian History in a very short period of time. The view is wonderful of Victoria Park as well as the bay and two lighthouses. A Kiwanis building is also located at this... More
