to think one could walk on the Plains of Abraham after the famous battle in 1759 is truly amazing, also to think how anyone could get from the river up to the Plains in such terrible terrain back then is amazing.

Every North American should see the place where the French and Indian War was won, but it's also a beautiful park located on a scenic bluff right by the St. Lawrence River. When we were there, they had a Halloween theme in the gardens, featuring "ghosts" of various historical figures in Quebec history. What fun! It's also a great place... More

Went for my honeymoon as well as a few times after. Brought my daughter not too many years ago. It was a beautiful place to visit and share with her.

It's huge. With a military barracks at one end (you can visit parts) and a stunning quite long walk to the excellent art gallery at the other end leave lots of time - there's so much to see). In between you have cross country skiers to watch and fabulous views over the St Lawrence. I'm sure it's very different in... More

We went for about 10 minutes. Just snow as far as the eye can see. Cross country skiers will love it.

We walked this on our own and with a tour. It was cool to look at, but it really came alive with the tour guide explaining the history.

A big space with skating. Excellent views over the sea, skating rings, cross country ski trails and a little chalet with heated loos!
