We walked the wall around Old Quebec and came to this park. It was very interesting to see the canons and artillery area as it was years ago.

This is a large open greenspace. You will want to walk this area on a sunny day, and you'll enjoy beautiful views over the lower part of the city and the St. Lawrence river. It also is a good entry point to visit the Citadelle and have a guided tour next. Not suitable for a rainy day, unless you come... More

A fun place to explore for those who are mobile or have kids. The changing of the guard show is a must see. There are very beautiful views of historic Old Quebec City from the hills.

We took an afternoon walk to the Battlefield Park not too far from the Concordia Hotel. It was so green and beautiful. The garden of Jean d'Arc was magnificent with tulips and other flowers. When we were there we met a group of Canadian with flags to remember this couraguos woman. They put flowers, sang song, and one person gave... More

The park, when covered in snow like today is a beautiful sight. The canons defending the city also offer a historical glimpse into older times and offer a different perspective of what life used to be like here.

My wife and I went to the Winter Carnival and had a great time despite it being VERY cold, but this carnival is clearly a big part of the city's culture and is very well put on. The park was the site of the majority of the activities and is very spacious and has nice views of the St. Lawrence... More

A very large park, with plenty of open spaces. Gardens, flowers, fountains, sun and shade. If you like some green spaces, don't miss it.
