Overview
More
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.

We visited the park to see the botanical sculptures exhibited in celebration of Canada 150th. The sculptures were simply amazing, each one more fantastic than the previous! We spent 2 hours to enjoy all unique living sculptures.

Yes, it's unfortunate they stopped the exhibit. It should be annual. Too bad the petition didn't work. We signed it.
