We rode past this statue on our horse and buggy ride. It is very striking and was a gift to the city. Our driver retold us the story of Joan of Arc and it was inspiring to hear of such a strong woman hero and to see her acknowledged by this strong likeness on her mighty steed.

Lots of varieties of plants and the contrast of colours makes for some great photos. It is not a big as I expected, so did not take long to see.

I picked a super time to visit Quebec City. The weather was great and flowers were still in bloom. This park is absolutely gorgeous and well worth the visit

The gardens were in full Fall bloom. Great stop in the overall park. We were there in September but the gardens were still in fantastic bloom.

We loved this park. The park is beside the Plains of Abraham. We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the park and relaxed in the shade on a bench while watching the horses and carriages going by. Great location and you can also wander through the Plains of Abraham which provides a lovely view of the river.

This sunken garden in the western edge of the Planes of Abraham is awesome. Very well maintained - it's moving to experience.

We stopped here on our way out of the Plains of Abraham. The gardeners who take care of this treasure truly do an amazing job. The flowers, shrubs and elms were impressive and it is such an oasis of calm from the noise of construction going on on the Grande Allee. Take alot of pictures, it really is pretty.

Missing one star as this is not an extensive garden, but it is beautiful. Free, too! Don't miss it if taking a walk around the plains of abraham.
