Stroll along in this beautiful park and enjoy the views of the river below. Be sure and read up on the history of the battle fought here in 1759 and it will make the experience more meaningful.

I thought I had to see this, but it was a cold and windy day so our exploration was a bit limited. I would imagine in good weather this place is teeming with activities.

Sitting on the Plains of Abraham really gives one perspective...as you roam the field it's difficult to not take in the history and blood that was shed. Nowadays it's a nice park but we should never forget the history behind it.

The brautiy of the grounds. Great sites to look at the St. Lawerence and over looking old quebec. Great place to walk my dog. Learning the history of the city and its people. Wonderful attraction.

Great park with stunning views. On par with Stanley park in vancouver or central park in nyc.
