Quiet area with great views.

Another of many little parks in the upper town. This one is close to the Frontenac and has nice views of the lower town. Find a spot to sit and relax and enjoy the solitude away from the crowds.

Nice park with monument and views
Aug. 2017 • Solo
This is a nice small park located in Upper Town, next to the ramparts overlooking Lower Town. There are several cannons in this area next to the rampart walls, and there are nice views both out across the St. Lawrence River and also back toward the gardens flanking some stairs behind the Notre Dame de Quebec Basilica. Since I have several French Canadian Ancestors, the main attraction for me was the statue of Louis Hébert, the first permanent settler (1618) in New France/Québec. The monument also include flanking bronze statues at the base of Marie Rollet, Louis's wife and Guillaume Couillard, their son-in-law, all of whom are my direct ancestors. There is also a bronze plaque on the reverse side of the monument commemorating 94 of the other first colonists of Quebec. Most English directions say that this monument and park is located in the Parc Montmeorency (Montmorency Park), but that is misleading, There is a Parc Montmeorency that is much further out, where the Montmorency Falls are found. This park in Old Town is just behind Notre-Dame de Québec basilica and next to the street "Côte de la Montagne and.Rue Port-Dauphin. Its formal names is Lieu Historique National du Canada du Parc-Montmorency.

Lovely park overlooking the old town.
Mar. 2017 • Couples
Went to have a look at this park due it's history. It was a lovely park overlooking the old town. It's was even better when we were there as it was covered with snow. Even made my first snow angel of the trip there. Took some photos with the old cannons there that protected the park in the past. Would be lovely in the summer with all the leaves on the trees. Worth a visit.

small park between the lower and upper towns of old quebec
Sep. 2016 • Couples
This small park is the corner of the Rue Port Dauphin and the Côte de la Montagne which takes you to the lower town. There is an impressive row on canons on the far side. It's a shady cool spot to take a break from touristing. There are some great views of the lower old town and the mural of quebec

nice space to relax and take in the views
May 2015 • Family
this is nice space to relax and take in the views after walking uphill all day. yes I think Quebec city is nothing but all uphill. we decided to walk the city "my o my" but it was like this city is nothing but uphill never do I remember going down all day. it must be the French Canadian air or something. coming from Cajun country Louisiana I understand that the locals do not want to speak in English but they sure are tough on visitors that speak only one language. but this park is a great place to unlax and be calm
