This site provides access to a large sandy beach and vast wooded areas characterized by multi-staircase trails. Its exceptional natural character will give you a great feeling of tranquility, despite its proximity to Boulevard Champlain and the bridges. Des Grèves trail extends for 1.7 km and is accessible via Parc de la Plage Jacques-Cartier and the CN Pensioners' Domain. Parking is free of charge at both locations.
Formerly occupied by First Nations, the site has yielded artifacts dating back more than 8,000 years.
