This parc is outside of the traffic and yet not to far west of the old town. If during your visit you the desir to slow down the pace of the racing touristic run, this is a sweet parc.

We did not know what this park was, but I had heard of a "governor's garden" and kept asking where it was. Finally a very helpful Citadel guide sent us here for "really beautiful flowers & trees." So right! And there is even a connection to the Governor General of the Province. What a find. Interesting history, although all signs... More

This is a park from my childhood. I used to toboggan here but I'm not sure it's still done. We spent a couple of hours here and walked the whole park. It's serene and beautiful. You do need to pay for parking with coins or credit cards. There is a children's play area as well.

Big public park with perennials, annual plants, roses, numerous varieties of trees, water gardens, one big fontain, birds, hawks, squirrels, old buildings (stable, henhouse ... )and a beautiful tea room. Belongs to La Commission de la capitale national du Qc depuis 1996. Great for picnics, running, biking, romantic walks, photography (a lot of different species of birds) :-)

The really noteworthy feature is the collection of trees on your way in. The beautiful building that used to be the stable has amazing architecture. The gardeners are not elaborate but they really are quite lovely and the setting is beautiful to relax in the afternoon and watch the sailboats on the St. Lawrence. It's a shame the original residence... More

We gathered lots of interesting information about the history of the buildings and the park, the man in the office was so happy to pass his knowledge on to us, and two Americans, visiting at the same time as us. A very nice way to spend a couple of hours, and calming. Thank you. Irene and Dave

It is easy to miss, but you will want to go back. The park is a couple of miles outside of the Old Town. Two kilometers of walking paths ring grass fields, gardens, fountains, benches, and wonderful views of the St Lawrence River. The park is free, but there is a small fee for parking
