Mackenzie King Estate
Located in the heart of Gatineau Park, this estate appeals to history-lovers who will enjoy stepping back in time to the early 20th century. William Lyon Mackenzie King’s garden is dotted with a number of architectural features lovingly collected by the former Prime Minister. The setting is infinitely romantic, and nostalgic.

Harmonic Sculpture Garden
The Domaine Forget in Charlevoix already enjoys a well-established reputation with music lovers. Its sculpture garden, however, which extends all the way to the shores of the Saint Lawrence River, and features works by artists from Quebec and beyond, is a little less well known. Access to the collection is free. To plan a visit or attend a concert, contact the Domaine Forget for information about its fall programming and the guidelines in place.
