We happened upon this while taking a self guided walking tour and spent more than an hour walking around the park by the St Lawrence River. If you want a peaceful and serene experience, this is a place to go!

Went in the winter so it was snow covered but still a beautiful place to see, with the St Lawrence river on the horizon.

We listened to the french version of the taking of Quebec by Wolfe when he defeated by Montcalm through a cunning ruse, thus securing Canada for the British Empire. The roles of British and French forces are played by actors as are the first people...More
