Perfect place for a stroll with great views across the St. Lawrence river and ample people watching, too. Lots of welcome shade late on a hot summer afternoon.

The Terrasse Dufferin is a terrace near Chateau Frontenac and is a gem. Imagine ladies and gentleman walking along this promenade 100 years ago. The setting is perfect, historical, and family friendly. Enjoy the walk and the views.

This is a great place to take a walk with your family, just be mindful of weather. There is not much shade or shelter from rain.
