This was a nice walk from our hotel (Clarendon) and once there was a beautiful place to get in a run or walk. The Joan of Arc garden was peaceful and the Martello towers were interesting. The view was beautiful and we walked to the Plains several times.

This urban oasis is a fantastic place to take a stroll. You can start at the Chateau Frontenac and follow the stairs along the Citadel to get to the plains. Easy access to downtown, back to upper town, etc. Great place to bring kids, dogs, or just relax and get some sun. Beautiful views and easily accessible. Definitely plan to... More

The individuals did not want to help us when we indicated that we did not speak french. We still don't know what was available to see while there.

This is an experience that should not be missed. The plaques on site are excellent in educating one in the details of the sacrifices made here. This is now a beautiful expanse of grass and undulating knolls but there is also an undeniable thickness in the air. It is a must-see.

My husband and I had such a nice peaceful walk in this green paradise last year when we visited Quebec city. The views, the greens, the flowers, the clean air, the quiet and peacefulness were all deeply appreciated after the hustle and bustle of Old Quebec. It is walking distance from there, so make sure you include it in your... More

A great place to get in an hour or two of skiing without leaving the city. You can get some exercise and still have plenty of time in the day for shopping, meals, and sightseeing.

I've been visiting this park since I was 6 months old and it remains a favorite. It starts at the Citadel and rolls westward along the escarpment. Many of the roads are bicycle-friendly and well worth a spin. It's a great place for a picnic. Walk a bit and enjoy some of the less-travelled spots.

We were here on a sunny June afternoon. We walked around to see the sights and the gorgeous garden areas. Then, we sat on a bench and did some people- watching. It is a lovely, relaxing place to spend some time.

This is one of the most important historical sites in North America and is also a huge and beautiful park that can be used throughout the year. The famous battle of 1759 took place here and many plaques indicate battle sites.
