Place de Paris on Rue Dalhousie in the Old City has been transformed into a public space commemorating the history of the site.

Four hundred years ago it was a beach. Now, after a $4-million redevelopment project, Place de Paris in Old Quebec is a multi-purpose public square ready to welcome crowds, whenever crowds return.

City and Quebec government officials inaugurated the 2,500-square-metre space, at the intersection of Rue Dalhousie and Rue du Marché-Finlay, on July 14, Bastille Day.
