This is a very beautiful area in which we walked from our hotel Chateau Laurier Quebec to the Pavilion of the Plains of Abraham which we also visited and saw the Influence of Japanese Art on Western Art (European and US). The exhibition was excellent and very informative.

A nice walk with the family and great time to learn more about the history of Canada. There not a lot of people visiting this site - it could be due to the fees to see the exhibition.

You an spend a short time or a long time here, learning about the historic battle on the Plains of Abraham, or enjoying the beautiful park with it's excellent walking and hiking trails. There were many joggers using the trails, and the 400 step staircase, which takes you down to the road below, along the St Lawrence. Lots to explore.

The park is not that big. So it is very easy to walk around. Although there are arrows for in and out, the in option is not good as it directs to the road without walking path. So the easy way is to go to the side walk marked out. When you reach the pavilion, yon can choose to come... More

I thought this was going to be a Battlefield. It is just a park. Make sure you take the wooden stairs to the bottom and back up though!

More of a historic place than one of beauty but we found that the park is great to stroll through after visiting the Grande Allee then making your way down to the lower part of town. The Joan of Arc garden and statue, the Martello tower, La Citadelle de Quebec and other exhibits are all within. There are good river... More

Loved the urban setting of this park. Worth walking around and taking in the sights. It is close to all other attractions

After many years one found a stairway down to the St Laurence River then you can go to a look out point in the river. Special. One can then run up 400 stairs++ and remember Wolfe did it with cannons! Great park for hiking, running and cross country skiing.

Peaceful and green. You have the sensation that a carpet was laid and you must sit on it, bread the smell of the grass and enjoy the view. Do not miss the place, it is just wonderful.

We walked the wall around Old Quebec and came to this park. It was very interesting to see the canons and artillery area as it was years ago.
