Only 20 minutes from Quebec City, the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier earned its nickname, “Québec City's Great Outdoors,” with its four-season playground. Winter play is on the area's two ski resorts, snow slides, and its new snowshoeing and Nordic skiing trails. Summertime finds travelers hanging at the lakes. Feeling adventurous? Spend the night in a yurt, primitive campsite or cottage in the woods.

Great floral exhibits, honouring the provinces, native peoples, and famous Canadian characters. Well worth visiting, even if you are not a gardener. Site is free to enter. Light snacks available but pricey.

We took a drive down to the Park to see the Mosaic Canada 150. It was fantastic. The kids loved taking pictures and seeing all the different creations they made. It's worth seeing it before it's gone.

Went to the park with family and It was amazing! Don't miss the Canada 150 special display! We went in the afternoon and it was not crowded at all.

Through September, this park has over 40 topiary sculptures. This is free but very crowded. Just amazing! The highlight of our day.

Suggest you look for parking on the streets nearby, that is free. Very obvious when you get there. There is police present.

I honestly couldn't answer that. But once in the Park it is not to bad for walking.

I just found this on the Mosaicanada site: The site is accessible for people with reduced mobility. Unfortunately, wheelchairs cannot be rented on site. Hope you get to go - it is an amazing exhibit.
