  • A historic area the scene of many battles with the British. It is like a park with monuments. Nice to see if you have the time, but I would not make time for it. 
  • The Park is really nice, well kept and easily accessible. The grass looks painted and trees look fake by how beautiful they are. There is the possibility to walk everywhere along the trails and not. There are strategic points to read information on the significance of the Park in the history was the battlefield.

  • Take the historic walking tour before doing this, so that you have a sense of the story and history. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking!

  • Magnifique et vaste !
  • Visited in spring this time. Great expansive views. You can walk run and bike in historic park setting. Wonderful!
  • 350 steps up Governor's Walk....Promenade des Gouverneurs....but well worth it. Can continue around and on top of old wall for a nice walk.
  • Great place for a little dose of history and nature. You can walk to the famous Chateau Frontenac from there while admiring the gorgeous Saint Lawrence river scenery. Must do while in the city.
  • Again this is a must see place in Qubec city. Do not miss this and give it ample amount of time. You can drive here close to the spot which is good.
