Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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.

This park in Gatineau has a wonderful view across the River towards Parliament. During Winterlude, this place is the place for adventure! Get your snowpants ready for sliding down the ice slides, trying out the interactive activities and stuffing your face with poutine and beavertails!

So much fun!!
(parking can be tricky though, so either arrive early or late)

Sliding was wonderful. Food is always way to expensive though!! Lots to choose from but as I said very expensive especially when you have more than one child.

Great park for long walks. It has a great view of the river and the parliament buildings. From the park, the walkway leads to the museum of civilizations. Well maintained and clean.
