The Battlefields Park/Plains of Abraham area is great if you are a runner, although be prepared for plenty of hills so make sure you are in shape. For non-runners, the view is spectacular and plenty of wide open spaces and roads/trails, plus many historical markers...More

This is a park of dramatic scale and history. You could spend a day just walking around and taking in the views

Located on the plains of Abraham, this large park offers great views and an opportunity to visit a number of historic sites, including the three remaining Martello towers. One of the towers may be toured.

One of the decisive battles in Quebec's history occurred here, brief though it was. That history can be viewed in the museum, well done exhibits and video, and the fortifications, cannons etc can be viewed at a leisurely pace. It is a delightful park land,...More

This is a large part of the history of Quebec City and is a symbol of the conflict between Britain and France. We walked up the 500 or so steps from the Dufferin Terrace to the top to get to the Park.

Being a history buff I enjoyed a stroll around the Plains of Abraham and visited the museum there. There was an interesting audio visual presentation and the few actual artefacts from the time are well displayed. There is a comprehensive collection of uniforms but they...More

I liked it because it is also the location of the Plains of Abraham, where the British defeated the French in 1759. +It's the place where 'O Canada' was sung for the first time in 1880.

Nice area for walking and enjoying the scenery, but it is hilly so be ready! Not much shelter so dress appropriately for the weather.

Access to the park is free and there appears to be free parking available (I think it's time-limited). I had parked elsewhere so enjoyed the walk thru the park. There are cannons pointing out to the St Lawrence River and a couple of watchtowers (you...More

There is a fee to visit the Citadel and museum, parkink is free but only if you do go inside to visit the Citadel, the price is quite reasonable and it's worth every penny you spend. Make sure you have at lest 3 to 4 hours... More
