“Great Walk along the Harbor”

Prince Edward Battery
Attraction details
Reviewed September 12, 2016

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.

Thank Gregg V

If you're walking along the boardwalk, you can't miss a visit at the battery. It's part of Victoria park's boardwalk area. It's near the ice cream stand, and bathrooms.
It gives you a bit of a higher view point of the harbour. In the summer there is a large white square frame nearby for picture taking. Nothing is off bounds, you can touch or stand on anything. It's great place for picture taking. There's a wooden stand to give you a higher vantage point complete with educational information plaques. There's also a nice grassy place to sit and enjoy the scenery - although foot traffic is quite heavy, so it's often better to look around, take some pics and then move on to let other people have their moment to take pics and enjoy.

Beautiful day at a beautiful park. My husband is a "fort" nut so he was happy with the Battery. Nice viewing area.

The view out the Charlottetown harbour is second to none from here. the locals use the boardwalk as a daily place to walk, and it is busy year round. I have a soft spot for this spot on the boardwalk, my husband proposed to me here 20 years ago.

we saw this on the double decker hippo bus tour. We would have missed it otherwise. Was very interesting to know that the cannons have never been shot and that PEI was only invaded once and they kidnapped an official and stole a seal which has never been returned. beautiful place for a walk. there is also a playground nearby
