Our coach trip stopped here and we were able to walk along the paths and admire the river. Safer than walking on the street and there are interesting art installations to see as well.

A great way to walk into the old city. You can park at the Military Museum and walk in this way opposed to taking the sidewalk. Much less crowded and you get a taste of nature.

Stunning views, a nice walk, and it's free! Start at the Plains of Abraham end and most of the walk will be downhill.

Very nice promenade, vegetation keeps growing every year. Well kept, pleasant. Easy parking on average. If you ever feel like venturing out of the old city for a little bit, that place is just grand.

We walked the promenade in the afternoon and evening after dinner. My favorite was the evening, watching as the sunset changed the landscape colors and the lights dotted the lower and upper city. Children fun in the vacillating fountains enjoying the cool spray. Couples and...More

A very pretty walk taking you high above the river If you start in town, there are many, many steps. Starting from the Citadel, you will be going down.
