There is a lake in the middle of it, which it's not really recommended to swim in, but they do offer jet-skiing lessons, and water skiing lessons, in the summer. You can sign up for a week of lessons, or just one lesson a day.
The park is full of trees, some of which have walking trails. There is a small section with a playground for the children.
There are small pavilions all around the park that have barbeques and picnic tables for people to enjoy a nice summer lunch/dinner.
The nice thing about Jacques Cartier, as well as the other city parks, is that they have washroom buildings on site that are locked nightly, but open daily. Jacques Cartier bathrooms also seemed to be decently cleaned when I was there.
There are a few security officers hired by the city walking around as well.
If you are there in the summer, you may notice various day camps taking advantage of the pavilions and the playground. The locals also frequent this park.
