The Parc of the Kabir Kouba Cliff and Waterfall is located a short distance from the city of Quebec. This public park features the popular Kabir Kouba waterfall, which is also known as the waterfall with the thousand detours. This waterfall is historically significant as it led to the growth of small settlements and industries around it, in addition to being an important geological site. An Interpretive Center chronicles and displays the history of the park and other information pertaining to it, and guided tours of the area are also available.
Parc de la Chute-Montmorency offers a multitude of activities for the entire family. In the summer, walk across one of two suspension bridges or through miles of parkland trails before enjoying a gourmet meal at the Manoir Montmorency. Winter can be just as relaxing, though daredevils can take an ice climbing course on the frozen waterfall wall of ice and snow. The park is located just east of Quebec City along Avenue Royale. Admission to the park is free but parking is charged.
