The gorgeous Jean-d'Arc parc situated on the Plains of Abraham is a must-see. In the summer it is a beautiful and well maintained flower garden with walkways and benches for picnic, reading a book, or just enjoying the quiet space. The interior of the garden is in the French manicured style while the borders are an English country garden. The... More

The statue of Joan of Arc is beautiful. It stands in the middle of a stunning oval of gardens. A ring of flat stones are built into gardens filled with a huge variety of flowering plants, annuals and perennials. There are benches to sit on and just drink in the atmosphere and smells of the different flowers. There are very... More

It sits in the Battlefields Park and not... More

This was a lovely location. The flowers were beautiful and the grounds were immaculate. The equestrian stature of Joan of Arc is a terrific sight.

What a remarkable space they have dedicated to this art piece. One reviewer had an aerial view that was wonderful. The sculpture is rough and heavy, and correctly so as she was no tiny quiet flower. She was a warrior fulfilling her commitment to God. The amount of flowers surrounding the space is great and glorious. A wonderful contemplative space.

OK, so here I am writing this review and what can I say except this is a nice statue of one of the most famous persons in French history. Definitely worth a look, but let's be realistic, there is only so much time you can look....

A really picturesque area with tulip plantings and other flowers. A nice statue of Joan of Arc. We stopped on a bus tour. I wish we could have spent a little more time here.

Most of the plants were just beginning to bud out, but we could see that this park had great "bones". I imagine that during the summer that it is a fantastic place to enjoy the beauty of nature.

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.
