    Great waterfall which can be viewed from many angles. We started on NE end walked all the way to Cable car and. Took it back to the top of the falls. Crossed above the falls on the way back to the parking lot. Great views.

    My wife and I had the opportunity to walk a bit through the Plains of Abraham. You could feel the history around you as you walk through this very important site. It’s a great place to take a walk while, at the same time, contemplating the history of the location.

    My wife and I walked the section between the Pierre Laporte bridge to the Plains of Abraham. It is an easy walk with excellent views of the St. Lawrence River, numerous docks and marinas.

    This is a beautiful aquarium but perhaps November wasn't the best time to visit. The indoor displays were great, especially the jellyfish. However, the outdoor displays were pretty sparse this time of year. That said, we did enjoy the Artic Fax display.
    Free parking was definitely a plus and we were impressed by the very large children's play area.

    This is a wonderful park that is located in the city of Quebec. It has lovely walking trails along the St Lawrence River. There is easy access to the beach along the River. We enjoyed spending a couple hours here. An added bonus is that the parking is free!

    Don’t confuse this with the National park named Jacques Cartier. That is a forty minute drive from Quebec City. Both of these parks are worth visiting.

    We stumbled onto a free concert here on a Sunday night. The band was great, the crowd enthused and the setting great among the illuminated buildings.

    The park includes the Plains of Abraham and Martello Tower 1 plus the within walking distance site of Ste-Foy, the 1760 victory that gave the French hope of retaking Quebec. The Plains of Abraham is an almost lime green green space, operated by the National Battlefields Commission. I tripped across where General Wolfe received his mortal wound. Locals were jogging or catching up with old friends on the meandering roads. Many interesting attractions border it, including the Plains of Abraham Museum, the Citadel and the Joan of Arc Garden.

    I went there for the Mosaicultures and they did not disappoint. If you're reading this before Oct. 10, it's worth a visit. It ends on the aforementioned date. So beautiful.

    I visited this beautiful beach as I was cycling to Montmorency falls. Next to it is a nice wetland with many bird species. There are toilet facilities and some food stalls. The beach is very clean and next to the bike path.

    This is a small but lovely botanic garden. It has an amazing peony collection, so a mid-June visit would be amazing. There are areas of old trees, underplanted with large swathes of different colours, or sometimes tiers - eg: hosta in front of solomon seal in front of a flowering shrub. It has one large area of beds with different kinds of plants, showcasing the collection. There is also rose collection and a covered walkway. There are also some sculptural plantings, eg: a large butterfly filled with growing medium and many holes, so that when planted will be butterfly covered with growth. The front of the garden has a pleasant water and rock feature and bird feeders. Today there were goldfinches, chipping sparrows, song sparrows, chickadees, cardinals, downy woodpeckers and a ruby throated hummingbird.

    This is a very nice huge popular park about 5 minutes ride by bike from the city centre. It is the place to view birds with plenty of shade and parking.

    This park is very close to the parliament building and is a nice park to walk around and absorb some unique views of the surroundings.

    We enjoyed cycling through old Quebec City and then along the St Lawrence and back.

    This cycle route is mostly flat and meanders along the river through town by the waterfront.

    Lots of cyclists (some moving at a quick clip) as well as rollerbladers, joggers, and walkers.

    The high maintenance level of the gardens in front of the provincial legislature reflects the importance of the building. The area is more like a garden than beds and beds of flowers. It is only somewhat covered in trees. There are seats and statues here and there. Furthest from the National Assembly building is the beautiful Tourney Fountain.
