“Great For Panoramic Views and Strolling...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is a beautifully positioned and well-maintained park overlooking the river as only a strategic defense rampart could. Worth the time and great exercise to boot if you circumnavigate the entire expanse!

“Beautiful park for Views and Walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

A bit of a jaunt from Old Quebec where we were staying but worth the effort. The park has wonderful views and a great sense of the historical significance. It is on a bluff and the wind was refreshing. After a great meal, a excellent choice to get some exercise in. If you are a jogger, it is a must.

“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely walk through the park. It is well maintained and has many points of interest. The tranquil setting is in stark contrast to the epic battle that was fought there.

“History ...but where is it?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a great spot for a walk and 'see the views' but the real downside is that there is very very little to explain the events of history and what took place. This is a real pity - irrespective of what side one or lost. In fact - its almost as if its been hidden deliberately. A beautiful area not maximised.

“Nice place to take a walk with views of the St. Lawrence river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Very green with lots of places to sit and take in the views. There is a place to view the river with an unobstructed view that is supposedly the highest point according to our tour guide. Take pictures and enjoy the park.
