Nice piece of history in a beautiful park. The structure itself I can give it 3 stars but I can't blame people who didn't have the technology for more. Cool thing to see, I recommend it, The surrounding of the fort is excellent.

Beautiful old fort defending the river against the Americans. The park is nice and there are historical re-enactments in the summer. This is a great place to bike to from Montreal (far) in the summertime.
