We stumbled upon this by accident. We were blown away with how beautiful all of the snow was! No idea what it looks like it warmer weather, but we found it to be amazing to walk through.

We’ve been here twice. The snow is thick and with the glow from the light posts it’s s beautiful place. Our son loved jumping in the snow. Fantastic fun

We were here in winter and there was snow covering everything which was cool. People were tobogganing and cross country skiing. Gorgeous!

Crazy gorgeous and well-maintained cross-country skiing and snow-shoe area right by the scenic St. Lawrence River. Free of charge. Skating also available, rentals of all sorts, skate sharpening, comfy lodge and clean toilets. Must do!

Quite an impressive area with excellent walks interspersed with points of interest. The walking paths are kept surprisingly clear - the photo is of one such path and you’d never know we’d received 5+ inches of snow the night before! Going off these groomed trails...More

Great for long walks and quiet moments in the winters. Completely cooveted in snow this place looks unspoiled and heavenly. It offers amazing views of the river Lawrence...and ofcourse, the ice skating rink!

It was fun to watch the teens & children ice skating on the cicular rink . Plus, several people were cross country skiing across the huge field of snow. We had on hiking boots & took a good snow walk around the edge.

Wonderful walking and adventuring even with snow on the ground. Fantastic park space with some historic markers and buildings! We saw many other pedestrians and runners!

We found out that you can rent snowshoes and skis at the museum. I would definitely recommend this. and I will do it next time for sure.

This large park just outside the old town gates is the site of a momentous event in Canadian history. We enjoyed the view of the St. Lawrence River, and a walk around the park but it could be missed as a tourist destination.

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.
