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.

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...More

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....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...More
