  • Beautiful park. Interesting waking tour. Easy to do with small kids and a stroller. Great for picnicking.
  • Beautiful recreation area for running, walking, sledding and snowshoeing. However, it is highly recommended that you watch the diorama so you can understand the historical significance of the area. Also, it is surrounded by other tourist attractions and minutes away from old Quebec.
  • Beautiful park. Many points of interest nearby. $9 parking for nearby old town
  • Best Place in Quebec city to run, beautiful track for roller skates. Lot of trees. Amazing view of moon. Over all best package conversation with people around you.
  • Did the museum, walking tour and Martello tower. All very informative, plus a very nice walk enjoying the views, sunshine and fresh air.
