The promenade Samuel-De Champlain is a large green space that extends along the St. Lawrence River. A gift from the provincial government to Québec City for its 400th anniversary in 2008, 1,500 trees were planted in the newly landscaped park. It restored access to the mighty waterway for Québec City residents. Great place to bike / rollerblade / walk /... More

We enjoyed walking and jogging here on the very nice pedestrian trails next to the river in the mornings. There is also a bicycle trail. I loved all the modern artwork along the park. In the evening we had a picnic at sunset and we had plenty of company with other couples sitting on park benches or picnic tables with... More

I tried to find information online and even called Tourism Quebec to get more information on this spot - and it was not until we were in Quebec that they had a good map showing where you can access the Promenade and where it starts and ends. A nice wide paved path with great views - really nice at sunrise... More

After dining on such luscious meals for five days, a stroll along the promenade was a definite must! It is beautiful, with delightful landscaped areas, statuary and plenty of space for walking or biking.

You can do cycling, walking, jogging on the side of the St Lawrence River. It is a beautiful place, it is a relaxing place. At Le Cajeu, some people are fishing. There is a nice restaurant. You have to go there when you are at Quebec,

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
