Very interesting for the history buff. The grounds are beautifully kept. It is amazing to see the thickness of the walls of the old fort.

With almost no motor vehicle traffic plus great pathways this park was a terrific running find. Great dirt pathways once you get just a little way in. Peaceful and cool to think of the big battle that took place here so long ago.

Walking the Plains is a relaxing walk. There is a nature trail also with trees from many countries. However the museum of the battlefield offer a good multimedia presentation which explains the battles between France and United Kingdom. Well worth it

The Discovery Center caters to multinational travelers very well. On a pretty day the St. Lawrence looks so nice. Seems very new with all the electronics. All info is in French and English.

TIP: if you are a runner or walker this is your spot in Old Quebec City. Its a nice park and all, but unless you are into history, or want a place for a nice run/walk I'm not sure there is anything extraordinary about it.

The scenery from here is magnificent. I enjoy taking photos so this was definitely a great spot. You can also take a carriage ride to get the feeling of the entire park. It is expansive

Where the course of North American History (debate able) changed. Numerous gem attractions nearby. A very pretty and well maintained urban park. I'm from Regina, SK and I think Wascana Park in Regina is the best anywhere (even better then Stanley Park in Vancouver - I know I'm going to pay for that statement) but the Plains of Abraham is...
