“What a gal!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Did you know that another replica of this statue is in Gloucester, Mass? But these gardens are so beautiful and they make a great place to just disconnect from the world and enjoy the peace and serenity of incredible gardens.

“Arc Park Lark”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Joan dominates the park and reminds us of the troubled relationships of the past! The park is magnificently well-maintained and a cool place on a hot day. It is the sort of place wealthy residents while away their afternoon and we were pleased to emulate them. At the far end of the park we found the swankiest public toilets ever encountered and perhaps the only ones to have their own canon.

Huge statue of Joan of Arc completely surrounded by the most beautiful gardens! Quebecers certainly know how to make their gardens appealing in every sense. Completely enchanting!

“Sure nice statue”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Sure it is definitely a nice statue to commemorate a great person and all that but it's just a statue, what's all the fuss about?

“Amazing spot”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The gorgeous Jean-d'Arc parc situated on the Plains of Abraham is a must-see. In the summer it is a beautiful and well maintained flower garden with walkways and benches for picnic, reading a book, or just enjoying the quiet space. The interior of the garden is in the French manicured style while the borders are an English country garden. The plants are changed with the season. At Hallowe'en the city decorates the park with seasonal ghouls and you can walk around the park reading about the various strange characters of Quebec City. The lights are covered in orange gauze making it a very fun and spooky activity to do with children (and adults!) This garden was one of my favorite spots in a very beautiful city
