Was a great walk along the boardwalk and up to see this. Was very interesting to see what they would have seen in the days of that era

If you've seen one old cannon, you've pretty well seen them all, so don't go to Victoria Park just to see the Battery. However, the park offers a very nice view of the city, and lots of parking nearby. It's opposite to the entrance to...More
