Owner description: Only 20 minutes from Quebec City, the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier earned its nickname, “Québec City's Great Outdoors,” with its four-season playground. Winter play is on the area's two ski resorts, snow slides, and its new snowshoeing and Nordic skiing trails. Summertime finds travelers hanging at the lakes. Feeling adventurous? Spend the night in a yurt, primitive campsite or cottage in the woods.

“Amazing Winter Wonderland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

This was awesome. Great ice slides, tube rides, busker type shows. AND no charge. It is worth the drive to Hull.

“Winterlude Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

We loved the Winterlude activites at the snowflake kingdom. We were amazed at the amount of activities provided and the quality. This festival is a fantastic event. The park is easily accessed and the best part was that everything was free!

“Incredible Winter Fun for the Whole Family.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

We went for the last weekend of Winterlude. Although it was mild out, the park was opened on Saturday and many of the attractions were opened for business. My wife and three young boys enjoyed the ice slides and repeatedly went down the inner tube hill. With the winter the way it has been, this was the first winter fun we enjoyed. I will definately come back next year. There was also some skiing, mazes and many ice sculptures to look at. We were also quite impressed with the show that was put on as well. I was worth the drive.

“Fantastic hub of Winterlude!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

We have been to Jacques Cartier Park in summer and in winter at both times it served as the hub of major Ottawa events and didn't disappoint. It's wonderful how both the Quebec side of Gatineau and the Ontario side of Ottawa can behave as one city.

in a drab part of the city and Ottawa river is not exploited for beach or other. bonus is near to Museum Civilization ...so cheaper parking here than museum.
