This park has a nice view on the St-Lawrence River and the 2 bridges. Bring your chairs or use one of the many tables for a country-style picnic. Or bring a good book. There is nice pathways on both sides of this park

This is a must visit if you are in Canada before mid-October. SME of these mosaics are incredible and are one of the best free displays we have seen anywhere in the world. Make sure you leave yourself an hour to fully appreciate the display.

Even if I'm a riverside lover, I have to admit that this area is more or less interesting to visit. Mostly residential and not realy visitor frendly.

I grew-up in Cap-Rouge, and I remember going to the 'Plage Jacques-Cartier' when it was lined with modest little cabins, a lot of them falling apart at the time. It was always a perfect place to go for a walk or a bike ride, hang...More
