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.

A good sized and well maintained park which sadly doesn't capitalise on the 'battlefield' element. Some small markers but better to visit Plains of Abraham if a visitor

My husband and I visited while on our honeymoon in June. We were first drawn to such a large park in the middle of Old Quebec City and only after reading the plaque did we realize the historic site we had stumbled onto. A lovely park to sit and rest, to watch the world go by. Lots of people enjoying... More

The 1759 Battle of Quebec took place roughly on the line from Av Briand toward the river. Here you will find markers placed where the regiments clashed.

We happened upon this park on our way from the hotel to the Old City. It was a great place to stop and enjoy the view, as well as read about the history of the area.
