  • At this place the history of Canada was changed forever on September 13, 1759. For that reason this place is an iconic, "must see" place for any Canadian.

  • One of the finest places in Canada to take the whole extended family. Or just a couple of lovers. History, gardens, open space. Beauty all around. Recommended.
  • Really enjoyed the view here. You can see all up and down the river ! A must see if you’re in Quebec. Do travel to their museum that is also right there, much history to learn
  • Canadian history at it's best. Great parks, lots of posted historical info. Good parking but Be prepared for some walking
  • Whoa, it's one of the biggest parks I've ever been to! I was amazed at how tall the hills were, and some inclines were steeper than 45 degrees. Quite the historic site with so many spots on the river to stop and take in the picturesque view. There is a museum there as well.
  • Perfect place to go if you need to change your mind, or just bind with nature. The view on the river is amazing, and it's very fun to pique-nic in there. Pokemon Go fans * spoiler : it's a must go to grind while sitting on the grass :)
