Landscape architect Louis Perron created the elegant Joan of Arc garden in 1938. With its stately palisade of American elms it has always been a jewel in the crown of the Plains of Abraham. From April to October it delights visitors with the riot of colours and scents of its 150+ plant varieties and species before transforming itself into a haunted garden for Halloween. Now you can experience it in its winter finery.
