    Very good family outing, free admission with the card of the Canada parks, staff very nice and helpful. Our 2 young children are not bored to a second thanks to the treasure hunt organised and offered by the fort. Highly interactive, the large and small is in their interest. Located in a beautiful park with squirrels walk is very nice.

    The children loved. They have their own load the cannon and they were very impression when the gun fired. To go where no achalender. Because otherwise a lot not take off due to the too big number of person and lack of staff. And with the past it is free this year it is fabulous

    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.
