Most weekends seem to be wedding parties getting their pictures taken here. If you are a Pokemon player, also a great spot for catching them!

Interesting look at where relations with our neighbors to the south used to be, and a good example of 18th and 19th century military works. Wonderful location with a great view of the harbour entrance.

They have done an excellent job in refinishing this site. The cannons are a great representation and there is a lot of information there to learn a little bit about the history of the site. Great little find.

On the spit in front of Government House this makes an interesting stop if you are walking along the waterfront trail. Good info panels explaining the history. Kids can climb on the cannons so they would like playing here.

Great walking trail around Victoria park and in the small forest in the Park. The batterie has a nice view of the harbour and part of Charlottetown.

This is the most interesting part of Victoria Park, and makes for the obvious stopping off point for the casual visitor to the park. The views from here are good, but if driving it might be harder to find a spot on busy days.

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

This is a pleasant area to walk and enjoy the harbor area. The old gun battery is interesting in that such a small gun battery could protect the island.
