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!

We discovered the park our first day and take a daily jaunt, discovering more each time. This is a great place to stroll or run. The nature trail is very relaxing and so verdant in the summer. Check out the fountains, the views, and the beautiful gardens. My favorite was the St. Joan of Arc statue and gardens. This is... More

Beautifully preserved with abundant signage and informative brochures. Views are breathtaking. Clean and we felt very safe walking the whole length of the park. 5-stars!

This is a real bargain for first time visitors. The bus tour guides, picked up at the Discovery Station inside the park, are humorous, informative and well versed in the history of this famous site.

Pretty and close to the Old Town. The Jean D'arc little quarter was the prettiest spot we cm upon. Otherwise we were able to enjoy the greenery but we did not see anything very special at all.

We literally stumbled onto this gem! There are great photo opportunities of the st. Lawrence river. There is a walking, running, and biking loop. It is very green and has plenty of benches to relax or enjoy a bite to eat. Im not really into history so if you are not as well you will stil enjoy the park.
