Parc de la Plage-Jacques-Cartier

Beach and relaxation
Parc de la Plage-Jacques-Cartier is a natural wooded area featuring trails that provide contact with the St. Lawrence River for its entire length. With direct access to the shore, you can contemplate the Cap-Rouge flats and enjoy a breathtaking view of the south shore and the Québec Bridge. An integral part of Fort Charlesbourg Royal National Historic Site, the park harbours remains of Jacques Cartier's settlement, established in 1541. Archaeological excavations have found more than 600 artifacts, confirming that this was the site of one of the forts of the first French colony.
