Parc du Mont Saint-Louis: the perfect retreat
Parc du Mont Saint-Louis looks over the village of Le Bic, which is now part of Rimouski. It is a peaceful place parents and children can visit for a view of the bay, the Îles du Bic and the Club de Golf du Bic.
It’s an ideal spot to spend a quiet afternoon with family, enjoying the fine weather and the stunning views. The park is also quite close to Parc National du Bic. After a long day visiting the national park, it can be very pleasant to enjoy the landscape from a different perspective.
A park with a rich history
In addition to being an ideal leisure spot, Parc du Mont Saint-Louis is a place with a rich history and a number of monuments to discover.
The most well-known is the Mont Saint-Louis cross. The 7.5 m metal monument depicting Christ on the cross was inaugurated in 1925 by the bishop of Rimouski. This integral part of Le Bic history was historically featured in the Fête-Dieu procession that took place in the village.
Parc du Mont Saint-Louis is also known for its cannon. The cannon was found washed up on the shores of the Île du Bic after a ship went down. It was historically used to signal the start of the Fête-Dieu procession in the village.
Parc du Mont Saint-Louis is open throughout the year and accessible to all. It is located on Rue de la Grotte in Rimouski, G0L 1B0.
