Board walk around the Plains of Abraham will give you a sense of the geographical size of Old Quebec, another beautiful view and a great workout at the same time!

We stayed across from the Plains of Abraham on a recent visit. It is a gorgeous park, well-used by local people, with beautiful gardens. It is also the location of the Musee National des Beaux Arts.

Joan of Arc sunken gardens is worth a look. Beautifully kept park and nice, quiet place for a walk. One of the high points of our visit.

The battle field has been turned into terrific park. Walking, hiking, biking and historical sightseeing are there for your pleasure. Take the tour, caleche or do it yourself. We walked and enjoyed the view and a cool breeze. The locals use this park almost like a backyard. It is a lovely place in a beautiful city.

Unfortunately the very spot where Wolfe died is part of the building site for the Art Museum extension , but there is a plaque for the spot where he was shot. The Plains of Abraham were much large than I thought and the information boards and the museum most helpful The Joan of Arc gardens are also very colorful and... More

I would recommend that you see these sights on a tour bus. There is lots and lots of walking. The whole city is full of history that has been very well preserved, there is a lot to see. Invest in a tour , bus, horse and buggy, what ever, but just enjoy the beauty of it all in comfort.

We were so glad we took the tour! The staff at the desk (especially Paul) were all so friendly and helpful. Our tour guide was "Marguerite Martin." She was fun, personable, engaging and knowledgeable. We didn't want it to end!

Besides a nice view on the St-Laurence River, the is not much to do or see there. The place is sometimes used in summer for outside shows.But when there is no show, or during the day, it's just a nice place to take a walk on the lawn and look at the fortifications of the former city,

It is a very long walk up to see this- over 300 stairs. Get in shape before you go! A very large park at the top of all those stairs!

The Plains of Abraham is a historic battlefield located near the banks of the St. Lawrence River and walled city. This beautiful park is one of Quebec City's treasures. With it's walking paths, incredible flower gardens, statues and numerous park benches it's a great place for all ages. I feel it is similar to Central Park in NYC without all... More
