Tons of history to be learned and experienced, also with a good view of Old Quebec and the St. Laurence River. Located right next to Old Quebec and accessible by stairs from the Terrasse.

You should take a walk here. Several very lovely flower gardens, especially the Joan of Arc one. Peaceful, well tended, clean free restrooms. Nice to just drive thru on a summer day with the windows down.

What could be more beautiful in the middle of a vibrant city? This park is huge and beautiful, and in the center of the City of Quebec. It is so extensive it encompasses the historic Plains of Abraham, and includes a charming Bandstand, for example that puts on many wonderful productions and musical shows. It is adjacent to the smaller... More

Beautiful park where you live the history as you walk the park. Overall well presented except for the Marcello tower. Parks Canada only allows admission to the tower if you buy an overpriced ticket for the museum and a tour of the grounds. Ridiculous.

If you were really a history buff on the area, this might be more impressive to you. If not, most likely you're like us and simply enjoyed the vast amount of open space and walking paths available. It is a nice view overlooking the river as well.

The battlefields park is a lovely open area in the city for walks and views of the St Lawrence river. The Musee des Plaines d'Abraham is very interesting. It has a film which gives you the history of the plains and how the British beat the French in 1759 and New France became British. There are lots of pictures, uniforms,... More
