  • It is spread during the Dauphiné and the Saint-Louis gate and inside the Citadel surrounding the Quebec City Park. Because it was a good day, have a rest on a bench in the shade while watching the horse during a break. Auteuil Street is lined with stone houses, in the immediate vicinity is the Paris House also looks, park-like atmosphere.

  • We woke up to a view of this park in Old Quebec City daily from our hotel room during a recent stay. The park -- a parade ground for British troops in 1830 -- follows the fortress wall at the rear and...  more »

  • Clean public bathrooms along the wall. Nice park for kids.
  • Nice to be close to the wall and have space to run about.
  • Beautiful boardwalk with many street artists performing.
  • It is a nice park with view over the parliament. It is nice place to stroll and the fortifications & cannon make you feel somewhat like Europe. Not a must see Quebec City sight, but if you have a spare hour it is worth spending it in Esplanade Park.
  • Another great locale for Carnaval de Quebec

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
