“Beautiful little park in the middle of a beautiful large park.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Joan of Arc is a beautiful garden in the middle of a large park overlooking the river. It was interesting when I asked for directions from a emergency aid vehicle on a break, I was only a block away but they had no idea where it was; guess they never get any aid calls for there! It is a nice walk and a nice place for a stop and rest.

“Halloween Ready!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

I really love gardens and no exception the Joan of Arc was all set up and decorated for Halloween, it was awesome! They had some very nice foliage in their gardens (I really liked the ornamental peppers " Black Pearl" variety, not to mention scarecrows, coffins, witches, and ghosts. This is an attraction to see and with the information signs for a self guided tour relating to history! BOO, don't be scared grab a coffee on these cooler days and stroll over to have a look, well worth it!

“Fantastic Plant Combinations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

A large garden that flows in an oval shape that contains common as well as unusual plants in wonderful combinations of color, texture and shape. As a professional US garden photographer who has seen hundreds of public gardens, this stands out! A must see.

“Nice to Visit in October”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

During our visit to the Plains of Abraham we stopped at the Joan of Arc Garden. It was all decorated for Hallowe'en with a number of ghoulish exhibits along with a short narration for each display. Fun for kids and adults, too.

“Nice statue honoring Joan of Arc”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Situated in the Plains of Abraham park, the statue sits in the center of a nice garden, a few steps down from the walkway that surrounds the garden.

There is some historical information about Joan of Arc, and a plaque that mentions that the statue was an anonymous gift from an American couple to Quebec, with an explanation of how and when the statue was built.

A very nice statue surrounded by some beautiful landscaping of flowers and shrubbery. Nothing spectacular, but worth seeing if you have about an hour to spare.
