This park only covers a fraction of the area of the actual battle of the Plains of Abraham, but it's still a beautiful park with cannons and fortifications for the history buffs. It also has a great view of the St. Lawrence River. It's a great place to wander around on a warm spring, summer or fall day.

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

This is a fantastic place to enjoy with family. People go there for picnics. It has historic significance. Could not spend much time due to sudden rain.

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...
