This is where Canada began. It's a must see for any history buff. A great place to have a picnic and relax...any time of year.

If you are looking for a great spot away from the crowds on the Grande Allee, try the Plains of Abraham park on the side toward Upper town. Best view of the 2015 New Year's Fireworks.

It didn't look that huge reading about it in tour guide, but the size made walking it rather time consuming. History was made here, and it's an essential part of why Canada is the way it is today. Good description of the history in the gazebo.

Whether you're a history buff or not, this is not to be missed. It's now more interactive and hands on. Definitely worth giving up your afternoon in Quebec city. For the young and old and all in between.

We spent hours wandering around this amazing park on a snowy day, enjoying the scenery and the fresh air and space. What a bonus for a city to have a space like this! Do visit if you are a tourist in Quebec - it's a beautiful park.

The Plains were a lovely place to walk through, but a bit treacherous during winter. Some of the sidewalks weren't cleared, and the nature trail wasn't clear at all. We came before the ice skating was open, so there wasn't much to do. It was a nice walk despite the cold weather, and I would come back again to do... More

A beautiful park for a walk or a run. We ran through here a couple of times from our hotel in the old city. Beautiful views of the river and a couple of historical towers.
