We walked here from the hotel. There was lots of winter sports going on. Snow shoe, cross country ski, skating. It all looked fun. It was a nice walk .

We tried our hand at cross-country skiing in the snow which made for a great conclusion to our trip. The lady at the rental place in park was very nice and helpful.

We were here in December 2013. There was a very inexpensive cross-country ski rental place on site. Very nice people and not crowded. Easy skiing for beginners. Beautiful views and if you are staying in Old Quebec, very convenient.

If you love winter carnivals, snow sculptures, drinking caribou out of ice glasses, tube rides, music, parades that rival Mardi Gras, and all around fun- don't miss Winter Carnival in Quebec!

This is lovely park with an incredible view. In winter they have a great skating rink, which is actually free! Skate rental and snacks are available for a nominal charge.

The Plains at Quebec city really surprised me with such a large expanse of green hilly lawns of one hundred and three hectares. It is a most important place of historic importance in Quebec City. We felt lucky to be here as our tour guide showed us the previous day newspaper photo showing how the water of the Pacific had... More

This area is superb. So much history there. Is it worth the walk/hiking. I've seen it during the winter Carnaval and there was a lot of people but it's one of the "can't miss" things in Old Quebec.

Like the snow sculptures. Especially like the ice bar and the "Caribou", a whiskey/wine mix served in an ice "glass".
