Dufferin Terrace features several kiosks and benches with stunning views.  Visitors are often entertained by musical performances by local artists.

In the winter time, visitors can enjoy a ride on the ice slide that runs down the hill from the Fortress to Dufferin Terrace.

The iconic Quebec City boardwalk is called "Les Glissades de la Terrasse" in French.
