Wonderful view, especially at night. Street performer circle at end. Watched one night a man from mexico preforming that had everyone in my party smiling and laughing (even one teenager that is hard to please) Great place to sit and relax for a few moments

An easy stroll in the morning with St Lawrence river by your side. Nothing gets better than this. A must when you visit Quebec city!

One of the reasons I went to Quebec was for this place - it’s nothing spectacular but it is special- walk slowly- breath freely and savour every footstep then you’ll know why

It was the Thursday night when we were there... They were spectacular. I believe the rest of August is Thursdays and Saturday evenings. It started around 9:30pm or so.
