The Rue des Violettes is located east of Boulevard Henri-Bourassa and runs between Avenue des Sauges and Avenue des Platanes, where a ball park is situated near the École du Cap Soleil et Saint-Pierre. Surrounding streets are named after plants and flowers.

Most of the streets in this area of Charlesbourg are named after flowers such as zinnias, roses, lilies, dahlias, orchids and sunflowers.
