The park, when covered in snow like today is a beautiful sight. The canons defending the city also offer a historical glimpse into older times and offer a different perspective of what life used to be like here.

My wife and I went to the Winter Carnival and had a great time despite it being VERY cold, but this carnival is clearly a big part of the city's culture and is very well put on. The park was the site of the majority of the activities and is very spacious and has nice views of the St. Lawrence... More

A very large park, with plenty of open spaces. Gardens, flowers, fountains, sun and shade. If you like some green spaces, don't miss it.

We had a few hours to spare whilst in Quebec and decided to visit the park and the Discovery Centre. We weren't sure what to expect but we thought that this was a fabulous place to visit. We were in the centre for over two hours. There was so much information and things to look at and watch. It was... More

I had been a very big fan of history especially the eseven years war. For me this was a moment where I was taken to where the most decisive battle of the conflict took place. It was a very powerful time for me. There are beautiful views everywhere. It is so hard to believe this pastoral setting was the scene... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the National Battlefields Park Museum, which included the three-theatre presentation, “Odyssey: a Journey through History on the Plains of Abraham.” The presentation, which surveys Québec City’s history using a focus on the Plains of Abraham, was not only informative, but often whimsical and amusing. A fascinating museum exhibit follows the last of the three theatres.

An easy walk and a peaceful setting now. Good views while walking and usually not too crowded. It covers a large area so do as much or as little as you want.

Very much enjoyed the history lesson provided at the Battlefields Park on the Plains of Abraham. The park is easily walkable and the venues are low cost and high in historic value. Whether you are a Canadian or a American there is a lot of history that is brought forward here that wasn;t taught in history classes!
