When Québec celebrated its 300th anniversary, the government of Québec gave the people Parc des Champs-de-Bataille. For the 400th anniversary (in 2008) they created La Promenade Samuel-De Champlain, a scenic path approximately 2.5 km long (1 1/2 miles) along the St-Laurent river between Quai des Cageux and Côte de Sillery. The space required shifted the road inland so that the public could bike, roller-blade, or walk along the water's edge all year long. With Pont de Québec and Pont Pierre Laporte framing the picturesque setting in the Ste-Foy-Sillery-Cap-Rouge arrondissement, Québec City has a beautiful new space, which involved planting 1,500 trees and outdoor contemporary art. There is a sports zone for activities such as soccer, quaint picnic nooks, lights at night for evening strolls, and at the Quai des Cageux there is modular 25m-high (82-ft.) observation tower next to a small cafe where you can enjoy over-the-counter foods like paninis, wraps, hot dogs, ice cream, and beverages.
