“A park with good history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

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.

“21 gun salute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

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.

“Neat to see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

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 that the fireworks display was amazing, even better than in some other large Canadian cities!

“Great harbourside park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

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.
