It was a bit hard to locate this park as I didn't see much signage. It could also be the fact that snow and ice covered much of the park too. We parked on the side of the road and... read more

It was a bit hard to locate this park as I didn't see much signage. It could also be the fact that snow and ice covered much of the park too. We parked on the side of the road and walked up to the fenced balcony overlooking the lake and the city. It was absolutely stunning. I'm an avid kdrama... More

Fronting the St. Lawrence River in the old city is a 1/3 acre park containing a collection of about 50 cannons & historical artillery pieces scattered about its grounds. The Battlefields Park includes the Plains of Abraham with Des Braves Park & forms one of the few Canadian national urban parks. Its significance lies in the Battle of the Plains... More

Fantastic place to stroll and read up on some of the items that have history about the plains. in October they had items for a kind of garden of haunts that was cool to read about in history. Summers must be amazing for picnicks and just relaxing. Just beautiful area and the views were great.

Well worthwhile to visit the Discovery Centre, The Battles Presentation gives a very good overview of the various battles that took place in this area during the 7 year war between France and Englans. Excellent replicas of the uniforms worn by the different regiments and other interesting artefacts to look at.

So much history surrounds Old Quebec, and Battlefields Park is just one more reminder of the turbulent past of this city. Be sure to take in the views and then close your eyes and imagine how this peaceful place was once not so peaceful as attested to by the cannons...

I've been to a lot of battlefields; this one ranks up at the top. It's also just a beautiful hunk of real estate (which, of corse, is why... More
