Lovely open park on the south side of the old city. Start up near the Citadel and wind your way west. It's HUGE! We stayed at a hotel near the Plains deliberately because, traveling with kids, I knew they'd want to spend sometime running around, and they did! Flying kites, playing soccer, and looking at the view of the river.... More

Huge fields, some residential areas, couple of old buildings to see and read about. The tourist information center was a nice building. Not a museum.

Took the bus tour thru here and enjoyed the tour. Then went back and walked quite a bit of it. Plenty of history and great locations to walk through the historical section and the parks section.

The day I visited was a nice and sunny day out. Everyone was enjoying with the weather. If you don't have too much time to see everything, you can miss this area. However, if you want to spend time outside or maybe have a picnic with your friends it is nice spot to stop.

If you do stop over at Quebec City, the Plains of Abraham is a nice place to spend a morning or afternoon just taking as stroll. It is a huge park which is beautiful and has a deep history, but if you are neither a nature lover or history junkie you might not enjoy this place that much. There is... More

Yes, we know it is correctly titled "The Plains Of Abraham", but in the annals of British history and General Wolfe the events relate to "The Heights". It was good therefore to be able to walk across the area which is now devoted to excellent public gardens, some formal, others used for simply walking or sporting activities. Nice place to... More

There are many sports- related opportunities any time of year, although a nice relaxing walk around the grounds, especially when the flowers are in bloom is best, in my opinion. I especially enjoy June- August going to hear the free music at the Edwin Belanger area on Thursday- Sunday with a picnic dinner or just drinks with friends. It is... More

The walk along the cliffs is great. The grass and paths are kept beautifully. Benches all over the park to relax. Lots of joggers.

There really doesn't seem to be any guided tours (which is a shame), but a great place to sit and reflect and let your mind wonder about everything that has happened here. I like to just go sit and watch the people walk by. I'm a history buff and know quite a bit about the area and never hesitate to... More
