Fodor's Expert Review Parc linéaire de la rivière Saint-Charles

Outside the Old City Park/Playground
Free
This 32-kilometer (20-mile) stretch of trails and walkways follows the St Charles River from its source at Lake St Charles, to the northwest (which supplies a large part of Québec City's drinking water), all the way to the Bassin Louise Marina, in the Vieux-Port. Many sections are in quiet stretches of forests, or run along wetlands and meadows. The trails immediately west of the harbor offer a green oasis at the heart of the city. It's also possible to rent kayaks and paddle over 11 km (6.5 miles) of the northernmost part of the river.
