Take a picnic lunch, enjoy a stroll through the gardens, bring a soccer ball to kick or take a jog. It's a lovely city park. After visiting the Musee National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec we enjoyed the magnificent flowers. It is a short walk back to the old city and the citadel.

Worthwhile for walking around the top of the hill, with a panorama of the entire area. It is a large area, and busy with folk walking, on picnics, or sitting to enjoy the view. It is free, so make sure you do it.

Very nice place to walk about and discover the history of Canada and this beautiful city. Make sure you have good shoes and some water. It makes me think of Central park

We have been here before and knew it was a great picnic spot, so we packed food and blankets and spent a couple of hours here walking around and having a picnic. Amazing view of the St. Lawrence and lots of great information at the info. centre.

While we were visiting Quebec, they were having their Summer Festival and the main stage was on The Plains of Abraham. It wasn't until we went to find the statue of Joan of Arc, that I realized how large this park was! Fantastic! And it's location within the Old city is ideal. Great walking, running paths, lots of places to... More

When we visited the Plains of Abraham on a bus tour we were surprised to see that it was in the middle of a developed area. The tour guide was very well informed and fun. Would recommend the guided tour to really learn about the history

We walked from our hotel, about 3 km or so, to view this historic area. It was amazing, the views, imagining the history, and it was great to wander on foot through the streets and enjoy the city.

You can still smell the canon fire if you close your eyes and think back to what you learned in Canadian history class. The area is well maintained by Parks Canada and for obvious reasons.
