Pierre-Dugua-De Mons terrace

The Plains of Abraham
A place rich in history, this huge urban park is the ideal place to meet on a balmy summer day. Relatively sheltered from the wind and on flat ground, sports enthusiasts and families will find what they are looking for!
A stone's throw from the Château Frontenac, very close to the post office, this park offers a breathtaking view of the Old Port and the St. Lawrence River. Children will find it fun to climb on the cannons and it is possible to admire the fresco of Quebecers.
The Samuel de Champlain Promenade
This promenade, bordered by the river on one side and a long grassy area on the other, offers both accessibility and privacy. Whether you are leaving from Sainte-Foy or downtown, you will be close to the promenade that practically crosses the city from east to west. Take advantage of the stone seats facing the river for the ultimate experience! Water games are also available if you go with your little ones.
The beach of Baie de Beauport
Do you want to trade the traditional grass with sand for your picnic? Look no further! The Beauport Bay beach offers beautiful fine sand in addition to being close to the city. Enjoy your meal with the gentle sound of water and a beautiful landscape. Pleasure guaranteed for couples and families.
The Fortifications of Quebec
To enjoy the most beautiful sunsets while having an unparalleled view of the Old Capital and its architecture, the fortifications are a must! Quebec is the only fortified city north of Mexico, so this is a truly unique experience!
