“In 1890, the former city of Saint Henri acquired some land adjacent to Saint Antoine Street to create a small public park. It would become the first public park in Saint Henri. The square is surrounded by Victorian row houses and triplexes which were built for members of the local elite. A commission for a monument to the French explorer Jacques Cartier was made shortly thereafter to Quebec sculptor Joseph-Arthur Vincent. In 1893, this statue was installed in the centre of the square. It was designed by Joseph-Arthur Vincent and was unveiled in 1893. It stands 9 metres (30 ft) tall and was made of cast iron. In the 1990s, the Cartier statue was replaced with a replica. ”
