dc.descriptionView of the Quai des hommes from the Quai des flots, looking northeast; The cultural section of the project (Station des Quais), gathers four contemporary gardens inspired by the mood of the river; the Quai des brumes, the Quai des flots, the Quai des hommes and the Quai des vents. At Quai des hommes (Man Dock) a long narrow boardwalk recalls the deep bond between man and the river. The end of the boardwalk it becomes a tall vertical freestanding wall with a window cutout to frame the landscape of the opposite shore. There are also stone steps down to the shore. "Restoring the river to Quebec" is the mandate that was given to the National Capital Commission Quebec for the realization of the Promenade Samuel-De Champlain. This was once one of the most degraded shoreline areas. Source: Commission de la Capitale Nationale Quebec; http://www.capitale.gouv.qc.ca/ (accessed 7/27/2014)en_US
