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

This park provides some good insight to Canadian history and the bay provides a relaxing and calming feeling to travelers. The cannons provide some good photo opportunities. You can stay for just a few minutes to take some pictures or a few hours to relax.

We witnessed the 21 gun salute on Canada Day. All shot from number 1 gun!! 21 times on the command of "number one gun fire!" This was followed by the fireworks. A big bang day all in all. In the best weather as well.

Located on the tip of Victoria Park, in downtown Charlottetown. Not a whole lot there, other than the old cannons and small barracks, but still neat to check out while exploring the area. The views of the harbour are magnificent from this vantage point, especially in the evenings for the sunset. We were here on Canada Day, and must say... More

Great harbourside park and boardwalk area. Take the time and read all the historical signage. Great stories and a lot more history there than even the locals know.
