Overview
More
The site of many clashes for supremacy between the French and British Empires, the park is the scene of the 1759 Conquest, which changed the fate of North America. Apart from its historical past, the park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. One hundred and three hectares of meadow and grassy knolls, decked with flowers or covered with snow, are there for residents and visitors to enjoy.

It is a nice promenade. You can take a view of the river as well. There are canons and children will love to take photos with them.

We didn't spend as much time here as we might have due to the weather, but this is one of the nicer parks I've seen. Lovely views, well maintained, great place to walk or relax, what's not to love?

This park is a wonderful retreat from the city or from the crazy crowded touristy streets of Quebec City. It's quite large, better to be seen on a bike than to walk.

Very cool to see something with such history. To see something in person that you had read about in school. We had a very good view from the revolving restaurant

Try contacting Echo Sports Rentals. They can probably arrange something.

The hotel is located in the heart of the upper town. Convenient and easy walking distance from all the sites above and easy to access via "funiculaire" to the lower town.
