The statue and surrounding park was just behind the hotel I stayed in. Took a morning stroll on the last day I was in the city and absolutely did not want to leave! It's a beautiful spot...

We came here on a miserably cold and rainy day, but we managed to find beauty in the flowers of the garden. Raindrops on flowers look wonderful in photos.

Delightful park with ghoulish displays in honor of Halloween. Would love to see it in its floral glory earlier in the year.

This park was all dressed up for Halloween with it's ghosts, scarecrows and pumpkin scenes. Plenty of room to sit and enjoy the children taking in all the scary exhibits.

Joan of Arc is a beautiful garden in the middle of a large park overlooking the river. It was interesting when I asked for directions from a emergency aid vehicle on a break, I was only a block away but they had no idea where it was; guess they never get any aid calls for there! It is a nice... More

This is an attraction to see and with the information signs... More

A large garden that flows in an oval shape that contains common as well as unusual plants in wonderful combinations of color, texture and shape. As a professional US garden photographer who has seen hundreds of public gardens, this stands out! A must see.

During our visit to the Plains of Abraham we stopped at the Joan of Arc Garden. It was all decorated for Hallowe'en with a number of ghoulish exhibits along with a short narration for each display. Fun for kids and adults, too.

Situated in the Plains of Abraham park, the statue sits in the center of a nice garden, a few steps down from the walkway that surrounds the garden. There is some historical information about Joan of Arc, and a plaque that mentions that the statue was an anonymous gift from an American couple to Quebec, with an explanation of how... More
