  • A small little area with a lot of history. Our hotel was right next to this so it was my running route to run around it. It's a very well kept park and worth spending just a couple hours to explore.  more »

  • This is one of the most historic places in Canada and every Canadian should see it at least once. For me, it made the whole event real and gave me a new appreciation for my heritage. It is very easy to imagine how the battle unfolded as much of the area is intact. I have developed a profound respect for the French, their culture and history as a result of visiting this place and I feel even more like a true Canadian.
  • It's a great place, and huge, for sports in the winter, or any season. Cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, skating, and jogging, there's someone doing these almost at anytime, day or night, no matter how cold. The views are spectacular and the proximity of cafes is a bonus.
  • Visited in winter, it was a nice place to walk around for an hour or two. Was excited to skate but it was quite busy and I didn't like the rental skates, they dug into my left heel so I only skated for a little bit
  • Loved to hear about the great history that took place here back in 1769. Hard to imagine great battles were fought here for 7 years between the English and French. There is so much history here, everywhere you look there are old buildings still erected from the 1700-1800's. So beautiful, rich in culture and history.
  • It's more about historical importance than an attraction. But the view of the St. Lawrence was pretty stunning. This is a large park area with cannons scattered around the perimeter. Lovely place to have a picnic on a summer evening.
