Get some great views of the city from this park. I did an early morning workout there- sharing the space with other early morning fitness fans.

Pleasant small park near the Fountaine de Tourny and the St Louis gate. It you take the Parks Canada fortifications tour, you will gain access to the powder magazine located in the park.

It was a pretty park where you could explore some of the fortifications but not as nice as the Plains of Abraham. If I wanted a big park, I would prefer there
