Bike or walk the Samuel-De Champlain Promenade, a large park on the bank of the St. Lawrence River. The park stretches nearly 1.5 Miles (2.5 Kilometers ) from the Cageux Wharf to the Sillery coastline. This landscaped park is a gift from the provincial government to Quebec City for its 400th anniversary.

Put on your comfy walking shoes and take a walk through history. Rich in local culture and completely welcoming hospitality. An excellent way to get some exercise while enjoying lovely scenery and learning about times gone by. Next time I think we will rent bicycles to see more and save our aching legs (we tried to fit too much into... More

I gave it 5 stars not because it is a nice tourist area, but because it is a very nice place to walk, sit and enjoy the views of Lawrence River. There is a cafe with washrooms, and there are spots to have a picnic. It has a nice view of the highway 175 bridge as well. If you are... More

You can walk (or ride a bike) along the St Lawrence River. Great place all year round but can get very cold and windy in winter.

We rented bikes from Laval University (for students or faculty only). The path is nicely laid out for cyclists to ride along the river. There are a few little stops like a cafe and an ice cream shop on the way to Old Quebec with some rest rooms and water. There is a point from Blvd Laurier where you can... More

Take the exit right off the Pierre Laporte bridge and follow the St Lawrence shore all the way to the old port. The speed limit is 60km/h and most will follow it. Very little traffic makes it a stress free drive with a beautiful view.

A lovely boarded promenade. It has wondeful views out over the water. We were lucky enough to watch a fireworks display. They are at 9.30pm on Weds and Sats.

Lots of space to walk/run/bike/skate along the river as well as many places to sit and relax. There's a little tower you could walk up to check out the view. There's parking along the Promenade, too

It is a lovely walk around the city on top of the fortifications. It is a nice view. It is an easy walk for all ages. A fun FREE activity for the whole family.
