Battery Provincial Park, Nova Scotia

Park Information:
Located on on the southeast coast of Cape Breton Island, the park is on a hillside overlooking St. Peters Bay.

The lighthouse found in the park serves as a landmark for the entrance to St. Peters Canal. Completed in 1869, the 800 m canal and lock system allow vessels to sail between Bras d' Or Lake and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Park is home to a number of historically significant sites, including the site of a lime kiln used to make plaster and mortar, some of which was used in the construction of Fortress Louisbourg, as well as the remains of two forts that involved in the French and English struggle over the North American continent.

Facilities and Services:
The park is open from June 18 to Sept. 13 (for the 2010 season) and offers a 56 site wooded hillside campground, comfort station (showers and flush toilets), open picnic area, and unsupervised beach. Walking trails provide a good view of the surroundings and much of the history of the site is described at interpretive sites along the way.
