Overview

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.

Great floral exhibits, honouring the provinces, native peoples, and famous Canadian characters. Well worth visiting, even if you are not a gardener. Site is free to enter. Light snacks available but pricey.

We took a drive down to the Park to see the Mosaic Canada 150. It was fantastic. The kids loved taking pictures and seeing all the different creations they made. It's worth seeing it before it's gone.

Through September, this park has over 40 topiary sculptures. This is free but very crowded. Just amazing! The highlight of our day.
