Although the Battery is part of St. John's, it doesn't feel urban. Nestled against Signal Hill National Historic Park, it's known as "The outport in the city".
Start at the bottom of Signal Hill Road and head up Battery Road toward the North Head Trail. Or start from the other direction, on the Trail, and walk into town.
Scroll the map on your phone. The red dots are sounds and stories.
Stroll anywhere. Explore laneways. Take a shortcut up Fort Waldegrave, or not. Poke into dead-end streets.
You never know what you'll find.
