Stop here for a few minutes if you want to get a good view of the lighthouse and bridge and the kids can play on the old train cars

Interesting displays of history of area and PEI's reasons for joining Confederation are worth a stop. Touch the Confederation Bridge at this site. Lighthouse is attractive, but was closed when we were there. Windy. Picnic tables available. Good place to stretch your legs.
