It was built in 1879 under the direction of Lord Dufferin, the then Governor-general of Canada and eventually named for him. The terrace is maintained by Parks Canada as part of the Saint-Louis Forts and Châteaux National Historic Site.
On the west end of the terrace is a 150 metres (490 ft) ramp or Terrasse Dufferin Slides (c. 1898) used annually as a toboggan run during Quebec Winter Carnival or the Carnaval de Québec from late January to mid-February.
