This is a Parks Canada site, and part of the Fortifications of Quebec. Very nice park. Be sure to go into the museum. From here you can walk all the way to Port St. Louis along the ramparts.

Be sure and take the tour which is included in the admission price. The young tour guide made it interesting and was well versed in the history of the place. Then visit the museum in the building where the tour began.
