While at first glance, the Plains of Abraham is to Quebec City as Central Park is to New York City, it is really so much more. This is where the British defeated the French in the so-called "New World." While Americans and the French may not appear at first glance to have much in common, their defeat helped set up... More

A must see for anyone interested in the history of Canada. Also just a great walk in the park. Better in the summer, as in April much of the area is still covered in snow

Walked along the perimeter and paths to get to Citadelle. Paths were somewhat difficult to walk due to ice/snow but better than the busy Grande Allee'. Toured the museum (if you're interested in military history) which was nice as well.

Was here in April and there was still a lot of snow on the ground so we missed a lot of the trail. However even with the small portion we did see it was a lovely long walk with a good view of the city

The Plains of Abraham located in Quebec City on the north shore of the St Lawrence River, is currently in the news because it was right here 250 years ago on July 1, 1767 that the first Horse Race in the land was contested. The race was well advertised in the June 25th, 1767 edition of the Quebec Gazette. The... More

This place is so beautiful, I went in winter and the snow was so thick it was like walking through Narnia! There are still footpaths and then a path for skiers which was really fun to walk next to cross country skiers. I walked all the way from one end of the park to the other, it was really lovely.

It seemed as though many locals used the park to walk their dogs and play with their children but we used it as a snow covered stroll to get to the very nice little art museum at its center. Both were worth spending time in!

The Plains abound with history, though it will feel less hands on here than elsewhere around the city. Better to know the history first before going. Worth being at for a concert if possible.

If you come during winter is very beautiful, but you will feel yourself inside Narnia. If you are in cross-country you are going to love it.

Beautiful skating rink and cross country skiing right in the middle of the city. There are rentals and and a small building to warm up - wonderful place to spend a sunny afternoon.
