Great place to stroll, walk, run or just sit and people watch. The river views are beautiful and the stairs at the far end provide great exercise.

Nice change from the casse-cou (breakneck stairs.) Gets you to Upper Town from Lower or vice versa with lovely view of the river along the way. No bikes allowed. Benches along the way if you need to rest.

There is metered street parking, and there are parking lots that you can pay for. We found the street parking challenging to find at times because it's very busy in certain areas. However, if you are going to be there for... More
