  • I liked it because it is also the location of the Plains of Abraham, where the British defeated the French in 1759. +It's the place where 'O Canada' was sung for the first time in 1880.  more »
  • Nice area for walking and enjoying the scenery, but it is hilly so be ready! Not much shelter so dress appropriately for the weather.  more »

  • A beautiful spacious park along the shore of the St. Lawrence River is definitely worth visiting while in Quebec city. The scenery is incredible and for the most part does not allude to the fact that a bloody battle between the French and English happened on this spot 250 years ago. There are 2 Mortello towers in the park to showcase the military past but also a very colorful garden with a statue of Joan of Arc in it's center. A very large park that sits beside the Citadel and is very accessible to enjoy.
  • Quiet, peaceful, great for jogging and with great scenery. Beautiful setting where the faith of Canada was decided many years ago. Great for a picnic, great for biking, great overall.
  • Great place for jogging in the city! ...or to do a nice picnic with the family! It is Quebec city 's "Central park" with lots of history!
  • Spectacular views of the city. However a steep climb, not suitable for those who can't walk long distance
  • Beautiful historic park. Well kept.
