Let yourself be dazzled by this inspiring urban site located on the banks of St. Charles River. Walk in the footsteps of the explorer Jacques Cartier who wintered there in 1535-1536 and of Father Jean de Brébeuf who settled in 1925 the first Jesuit establishment in Canada. Enjoy a picnic on the grass, a biking ride, a walk or a run in the hiking trails along the river. During summertime, feel the rhythms of the vibrant events for the whole family.
