  • There was a lot of history written on boards and plaques but there really wasn't much to see. Save yourself all that walking and do something else. 
  • Beautiful place to walk and explore the banks of the Rio San Lorenzo. It is a site history where took place the battle of the plains of Abraham.

  • Unfortunately we left the park for the last day and we didn't have time to enjoy more. Is a large park with lawn and beautiful trees. In autumn there is a show of colors with plantains. Have some banks spread that invite to a stop to read a book, picnic or just enjoy the scenery. Irresistible on a sunny day!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful and huge park. Nice tourist location. There's a Geodude neat (Pokemon Go) at the citadel.
