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.

It is a magical place for both children and adults during the annual Winterlude festival as it becomes a wonderland of snow and slides

“Best place for kids during Winterlude”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I remember this park from my childhood. Teddybear picnics and winterlude. I have the impression it's mostly kids stuff that goes on here, but that's probably because I went there for mainly kid things.

“Jacques Cartier Park”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Jacques Cartier Park is located in Quebec just on the other side of the Alexandra Bridge. Tour boats on the Ottawa River stop there to pick up or drop of passengers. A very pretty location.
