  • Great park with magnificent views. It has a nice deck that goes from the park to the town itself and everything is superbly clean and nice. Would highly recommend it for a stroll or a picnic on a nice day
  • Wonderful walk through history - but has great hiking and walking trails through the woods as well. Nice pavilions and fountains. This is where the Battle of the Plains of Abraham took place and the British took over Quebec from the French in the 1750's. The trails here lead down to the Citadel and old Wall in Old Quebec city. Wonderful green space - and make sure you check out the museum at the end of the park!
  • It is a beautiful place to walk through. Took lots of pics. What an amazing experience and so much to see.
  • Spent a lot of time hiking around this area mostly because I was lost but I royally enjoyed it....views were great.
  • A beautiful spacious park along the shore of the St. Lawrence River is definitely worth visiting while in Quebec city. The scenery is incredible and for the most part does not allude to the fact that a bloody battle between the French and English happened on this spot 250 years ago. There are 2 Mortello towers in the park to showcase the military past but also a very colorful garden with a statue of Joan of Arc in it's center. A very large park that sits beside the Citadel and is very accessible to enjoy.
