You may or may not have noticed this... but when you Google Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, an area near the Military Base gate appears to named the Bull Pen. According to the Government of Canada, this is unincorporated territory. Interestingly enough, the Commission de Toponymie Quebec mentions that this area was known to be a ''safe zone'' where issues and problems could be resolved.
Personally, I don't have a whole lot of information regarding the ''famous'' Bull Pen, but I'd love to know more about its origin and what it truly stands for. So, if you happen to have more information regarding this area in Valcartier, please share! I'm very curious! :)
The only text I've come across so far that mentions the Bull Pen is in Mr. Pat Durocher's account of the Club Castor's history. Here's what he says:
Je me souviens qu'en compagnie de quelques amis on allait après l'ouvrage frapper des balles dans le ''bull-pen.''

In English: Mr. Pat Durocher notes that he used to head off to the Bull Pen to play golf after work.
And here's the text found on the Commission de Toponymie Québec:
