Overview
More
The site of many clashes for supremacy between the French and British Empires, the park is the scene of the 1759 Conquest, which changed the fate of North America. Apart from its historical past, the park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. One hundred and three hectares of meadow and grassy knolls, decked with flowers or covered with snow, are there for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Take your time to stroll through the area, and read the many plaques to get a sense of the fascinating history. A great way to spend a morning walking the pathways. The walk down the steps to the lower river level is quite a hike....More

We were expecting the tour of Plains of Abraham to focus on the battles that occurred there but this was really just a tour of a big park. The guide used a few handouts to pass around to keep the guests interested but if you...More

It was very hot exploring the Plains of Abraham, but worth going to see the views, walls of the Citadel, gardens and museum. Go before the buses arrive and you will enjoy some space and privacy!

Very well kept area, and plenty of couples and families sitting around the area. Also, very quiet and not much happening (when I events ongoing).

Have to stop and see this spot if you enjoy Canadian History. The museum gives you a great deal of information and for a fee you can see the upper floors and go on a hour bus tour. We chose just to look on the...More

This park is a huge green space of historical significance. It's worth walking through and reading the various things posted. As a younger man, it was also a good spot to sit at night and stealthily partake in a beverage or two. I'm too old...More

Relaxing walk with some great views along the way. The Garden for Joan of Arc was beautiful, It is an easy walk from all of the shopping and restaurants. The Citadel sits above and it also a great tour.

The hotel is located in the heart of the upper town. Convenient and easy walking distance from all the sites above and easy to access via "funiculaire" to the lower town.
