Beautifully preserved with abundant signage and informative brochures. Views are breathtaking. Clean and we felt very safe walking the whole length of the park. 5-stars!

This is a real bargain for first time visitors. The bus tour guides, picked up at the Discovery Station inside the park, are humorous, informative and well versed in the history of this famous site.

Pretty and close to the Old Town. The Jean D'arc little quarter was the prettiest spot we cm upon. Otherwise we were able to enjoy the greenery but we did not see anything very special at all.

The 1759 Battle of Quebec took place roughly on the line from Av Briand toward the river. Here you will find markers placed where the regiments clashed.

We happened upon this park on our way from the hotel to the Old City. It was a great place to stop and enjoy the view, as well as read about the history of the area.
