During Winter Carnival bring your ice skates. In the summer bring your appetite and wear your sneakers as there are shopping opportunties galore and ethnic culinary delights.

Just a nice place to stop while walking around Quebec City. There were entertainers while we were there, and it's just a pretty place.

This was a nice little outdoor skating rink. It's free to skate here. Good atmosphere. It's right next to a parking ramp so that makes things easier.

More of a triangle really, but just a large concrete space. A few trees. A nice statue of 6 women on the west side. A good space for concerts and fairs. but not a destination unless attending one of these.

We had a wonderful time skating on this little ice rink during Carnaval. It is well maintained and has plenty of seating indoors and outdoors to put your skates on. The location is nice too with the lights that surround it.

I visit Quebec at least three times a year. This is a must visit every time. Nice to go sit and watch others enjoying life. A cup of coffee and friends/family and conversation.Buskers, skaters (depending on time of year).
