Above all, Place Jean-Béliveau is a place to meet friends, make discoveries and have fun. This huge public space can accommodate up to 10,000 people for outdoor events of all kinds in every season.
On hot summer days, kids will take special delight in the water park, while adults are sure to enjoy the extensive lawns—a great place to stretch out as you nibble on a few Grand Marché delicacies! Whether you're in the mood for a family picnic or another outdoor event, Place Jean-Béliveau is where it’s at!
The kids will love it! The Québec City region's largest playground will be inaugurated this fall at Place de la Famille. Designed as an outdoor adventure course ending in the trees, the structure will include activity stations, hanging elements and climbing cables, all inspired by the magical world of Peter Pan. Picnic tables, a rubberized surface and a new grassy area will also be added.
Place Jean-Béliveau's public artworks offer a unique blend of art and sport, mixing streamlined simplicity with surprise. In addition to "La Rencontre," five daring pieces of contemporary art corresponding to five key periods in the history of ice hockey in Québec City will be installed between now and 2022 in the special commemorative area.
