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.

On a nice day (warm or cold) it is worth the walk to grab a bit of history and enjoy being outdoors.

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...More
