Only 20 minutes from Quebec City, the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier earned its nickname, “Québec City's Great Outdoors,” with its four-season playground. Winter play is on the area's two ski resorts, snow slides, and its new snowshoeing and Nordic skiing trails. Summertime finds travelers hanging at the lakes. Feeling adventurous? Spend the night in a yurt, primitive campsite or cottage in the woods.

Our visit to Mosaic Canada 150 was well worth the walk from the Westin, and across the bridge. They showcased works of gardening, landscaping and foliage never seen before. It's a 25min walk with the most privileged views of the city.

Beautifully done. Myself and my two adult children toured the park. We went on a Sunday afternoon so there was a bit of a line up to get in but the line moved quickly. The floral mosaics are spread out throughout the park allowing you...More

A very unique botanical presentation that looks back on Canada's history through unique living sculptures. Free to visit.

This display is a must see. The carvings of the flowers and bushes and trees is amazing. Such great artwork. I highly recommend this free stop. Parking is not free but worth the trip and I don't like flowers.

The park is the location for the MosaiCanada 2017 exhibit, which consists of elaborately-designed sculptures crafted entirely of flowers and plants. It is amazing and free to attend. Parking is available on site, but it can be limited. The exhibit is only there through October.

This is a must see for people of all ages. The plant sculpture is amazing and young and old will be fascinated by them. Disabled accessible with refreshments stops along the way it's a perfect day out.

I honestly couldn't answer that. But once in the Park it is not to bad for walking.

I just found this on the Mosaicanada site: The site is accessible for people with reduced mobility. Unfortunately, wheelchairs cannot be rented on site. Hope you get to go - it is an amazing exhibit.
