Fantastic place to stroll and read up on some of the items that have history about the plains. in October they had items for a kind of garden of haunts that was cool to read about in history. Summers must be amazing for picnicks and just relaxing. Just beautiful area and the views were great.

Well worthwhile to visit the Discovery Centre, The Battles Presentation gives a very good overview of the various battles that took place in this area during the 7 year war between France and Englans. Excellent replicas of the uniforms worn by the different regiments and other interesting artefacts to look at.

So much history surrounds Old Quebec, and Battlefields Park is just one more reminder of the turbulent past of this city. Be sure to take in the views and then close your eyes and imagine how this peaceful place was once not so peaceful as attested to by the cannons...

You do not need to be a military historian to enjoy this marvelous park. Wikipedia will tell you enough about what happened here in 1759 to get your head in the game. I've been to a lot of battlefields; this one ranks up at the top. It's also just a beautiful hunk of real estate (which, of corse, is why... More

Close your eyes and listen with your heart. Imagine the battles of bygone eras. Open your eyes and enjoy the quiet beauty of an immaculately kept park and appreciate Mother Nature. Rest and relax on the soft velvety grass or take a leisurely stroll across the fields.
