Situation next the the bridges Pont Champlain and Pont de Quebec, a 15min car ride from downtown Quebec city. Excellent place for families, although the price of entry can be slightly high for some families.

They have a complete accessibility program. Please check their documentation at the bottom of their website, in the link to accessibility (sorry, Trip Advisor did not allow me to paste the link here).
