Even though it was snowy, my family and I enjoyed our walk around this very historical place. The views of the Saint Lawrence River are great.

This park is worth the visit either by foot or by car (through the parkway). You get a great view of the St-Lawrence River, the Citadel and Old Quebec and gain an appreciation of the history. Very close to the Grande Allee and nearby restaurants.

It was a rainy day when we went but it didn't stop us to explore the park. Great for a picnic. Beautiful sights and picture ops! A must see!

We walked around much of Battlefields Park on our recent visit but as we are getting close to Halloween it would be a big mistake not to visit the individual garden areas close to the Joan of Arc Statue. There are a number of very well set out displays including ghoulish tales linked to Quebec Fortress prison and its former... More

An impressive vista of green for walking, sitting and enjoying this historical place. There are interpretive signs strategically placed, and lovely photography opportunities all around. We were lucky to have an amazing guide retell the history.

I say this is one of the most unique parks in the world in a way as the place displays multiple real cannos that were used back in when the city was still an active fortress. You feel the history... Location is right south of the Quebec City and it is accessible from the city center. What I liked most... More

There is a nice board walk that you can follow from here that follows the river path and ends up at the chateau. Good views all the way and across to levis.

Hard to believe this is the site where a battle that lasted less than thiry minutes changed the course of history! Now it is a beautiful green space in the middle of an urban area. The park is absolutely lovely, beautiful rolling hills, lush green grass and well manicured gardens attract residents and tourists alike. The Park includes the Plains... More
