  • Worth a lot around here, especially with children. Has several leisure facilities, bars, restaurants ... It feels good to walk by this place, even in the coldest days of autumn, to see the trees with their red colors decorating the view. Add in your script!

  • Closed area due to construction. Not really scenic...Railroad, freeway between you and water. There was a ferry across the st Lawrence but not now 
  • Between centuries-old houses and contemporary architecture elements as the center of science, this place is definitely worth the peek. A view of choice on the St. Lawrence River and a closeness with the very interesting Place Jacques-Cartier.
