“A lively site, the heart (and the lungs!) of the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This park is to Québec City what Central park is to New York: a vibrant place where all sorts of people go all year round. The view on the Saint-Laurent is spectacular. The paths at the bottom of the park are surprising. Great place for all sorts of activities, football, hiking, cross-country skiing, jogging. If you have more romantic leanings, beward of weeds!

“Great place to reflect on the history of Quebec City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Lovely open space with lots of picnic tables to sit and remember the battles that took place here. Great views from the top over the city and of the St Lawrence river. The Citadelle overlooks the park and can been visited along with the museum over the other side. Small gift shop and toilets located at the top of the park. A lovely area to have a picnic on a nice autumn day.

“A Ride Through the Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Since we were on a bus tour, we were driven through the park while the guide shared history. Wow, lots of cannons for history buffs.

“Parkland and wooded walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Liked the park areas for picnics etc. but also really nice along the wooded footpaths. There is information along the way about the different plants and trees in the area. Both in English and french.
