“Beautiful view”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Very nice promenade with a great view. I started up next to the Citadelle and it is the easiest way to do it.

“If you love running or biking you will love this promenade”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

This is a nice area to cycle, walk or run. I have run along it several times and am always blown away by the view. The promenade runs along the St Lawrence - you are always near water.

Along the way there are some neat sculptures and art installations.

The promenade was restored for the 400th anniversary of the city in 2008. They did an excellent job of it.

“Walk a little or a lot”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This promenade is excellent for strolling, taking panoramic photos, people watch, listen to muscians. This is certainly what Quebec city is about! Decide how many stairs to climb or what nearby gourmet restaurant to go to.

“Beautiful and Free”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Quebec City is beautiful and the Promenade is definitely a must see. Spectacular view of the St. Lawrence. The sun was in and out and we were lucky to be serenaded by a street entertainer.

“Best view on the river”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I always went to walk on the promenade (in summer and winter) when I was visiting Quebec. Now that I am living in Quebec, I always bring my friends for a nice walk when they visit me.
