This place has been around for ages and it has improved with time. Great place to play tennis, or walk around, even skate in winter or canoe in summer. It is well located and quite packed on sunny days.

This open space off of Rue La Fontaine was absolutely beautiful. Lined with park benches, a pond and trees, it is worth taking a stroll through the park.

La Fountain Park is a staple in the core of the city. Great park to walk, bike, relax. There is a lake with ducks. Would recommend for all who just want to relax and get away from the bustle of the busy city.

You can ice skate here and its not on a traditional rink. Its pretty cool I visited in the winter and the temperature was quite cold so bundle up if you are not skating. Vous pouvez patiner ici - et n'est pas une patinoire traditionnelle....More

Sunday afternoon walking through the park and experiencing the ducks and the people suntanning was really great and unexpected in the heart of the city. People were very friendly and playing instruments lazily in the sun....Really enjoyed it!!
