An equestrian statue of Joan of Arc is the focus of this park, which is bright with colorful flowers in summer. A symbol of military courage and of France itself, the statue stands in tribute to the heroes of 1759 near the place where New France was lost to the British. The park also commemorates the Canadian national anthem, "O Canada"; it was played here for the first time on June 24, 1880.

Flowers are in bloom all around the park and make for some lovely picture taking opportunities. The park is relatively small so it can be done in a short amount of time, but very worth seeing.
