What fun! We visited when the sunken garden was all decked out for Hallowe'en.

The Joan of Arc garden is beautiful and when we visited it was close to Halloween and the garden had been decorated appropriately. Around the garden there were plaques detailing ghostly and macabre stories from Quebec City and matching visual displays. A lot of fun!

This is a beautiful garden. Even better it was decorated for Halloween while we were there!

The statue itself is nice, but then they placed it in a sunken garden! Lovely! We were just there, so it was decorated for Fall/Halloween. It was so pretty and festive! The hop on-hop off bus goes by it. Our driver stopped for a minute so people could get a picture.

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.

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.
