“Nice city based park but not enough on the Battlefields”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

A good sized and well maintained park which sadly doesn't capitalise on the 'battlefield' element. Some small markers but better to visit Plains of Abraham if a visitor

“Lots of History”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

My husband and I visited while on our honeymoon in June. We were first drawn to such a large park in the middle of Old Quebec City and only after reading the plaque did we realize the historic site we had stumbled onto. A lovely park to sit and rest, to watch the world go by. Lots of people enjoying the warm sun, rollerblading, biking and jogging. The area is well used but also well maintained. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the path.

“Battlefield Location”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The 1759 Battle of Quebec took place roughly on the line from Av Briand toward the river. Here you will find markers placed where the regiments clashed.

“A nice, well kept park with a lot of history.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We happened upon this park on our way from the hotel to the Old City. It was a great place to stop and enjoy the view, as well as read about the history of the area.

“Great park with scenic views”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My perspective maybe a little bit different, because I was mostly jogging there during our stay in Quebec City. I certainly loved it!

Nice beautiful trails, great views, and lots of space!
