There are many parks in Prince Edward Island. There is one of note in Downtown Charlottetown. Victoria Park is a waterfront park located behind the Lieutenant Governor General’s residence. On this picture, you see downtown Charlottetown just behind the park. The little specks in the water are boats in and around Charlottetown harbour. I took this picture from the Atlantic Technology Centre website. They have an interesting article on Dead Man’s Pond which is located in the centre of the park.
The 100 acre park features a wide boardwalk for a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. This is a very popular area for dog walkers, joggers and walkers alike. There is also a dedicated cycling lane next to the one-way vehicle lane drive along the outside of the park.
During or prior to the war of 1812, there was a fortification on the part which faces the incoming navigation channel. The sketch shows how Victoria Park had a good vantage point of the navigational entrance to Charlottetown Harbour.
It features Tennis Courts, A swimming Pool, baseball diamond and play structures for the children. So on a nice outdoorsy day, come and relax in Victoria Park and enjoy the scenery and the history.
