Wow, there is a lot to read and it is in English and French. The info on the boards is neatly organized and it felt like a mini museum. Nice place to stop at while walking along the water or enjoying a day at the...More

A genuine piece of the past and a must see for history buffs. While not something that would be regarded as "exciting" it is a pretty "cool" and interesting spot for a 15 - 20 minute visit. Great photo ops. Lots of memories made here....More

So there were a handful of cannons off the boardwalk by the shore in Victoria park. Some of the earlier reviews seem to match what I saw/did, while others seem to describe a completely different place. I'm so confused. Anyway, a lot of bilingual placards...More

Wow! I had no idea this was here. What a pleasant surprise. This was the site of a French fortification that was taken over and used by the British. The cannons are original! Definitely worth a trip!

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...More
