“Not a whole lot to see right here, but there is a nice view.”

Prince Edward Battery
Attraction details
Reviewed May 22, 2016

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 Charlottetown Harbour and a great place for pictures. And if you're with youngsters, or alone for that matter, there's a good ice-cream stand nearby. A bit far to walk from the cruise terminal unless you're feeling energetic, in which case use the boardwalk which takes you most of the way.

I am lucky enough to live within walking distance, and take it for granted.
Lovely park, great boardwalk, good views, no admission fee, easy to park, what's not to like about it!

This is an awesome place to see where they fought to save PEI from the French and what the cannons were like they used. Where you can take reenactment photos minus the military suits of that era. This can be done along the way on your walk on the boardwalk in Victoria Park.

The waterfront stroll is a very nice way to walk off a big breakfast. It's a 6.4 km stroll. God help you though if you end up needing a restroom after Labor Day. I was amazed to find no facilities. Got to see some wooded area therefore to take care of business. Not even a portable toilet in sight-yet folks playing tennis and kids playing on a nice playground. Very gross! Charlottetown is otherwise an extremely clean,friendly place with wonderful restaurants.

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 park.
