  • This is a very large outdoor area, somehow preserved within a busy city. Lots of walkways through the area, huge amount of greenspace to explore and take in the views. You can take the usual tourist path around to the area, or take an adventure up the almost 400 stairs up the cap-blanc stairway to the plains. Walk along the river, see the old houses, then make your way through side streets and to the bottom of the stairs to start the climb. It will seem like you're walking aimlessly to nowhere, but then you will see a steady stream of people at all hours of the day walking and running the stairs. There's a nice garden in the plains, and the area is surrounded by all kinds of hotels, restaurants and coffee shops to take a break in.
  • Groomed classic and skate ski tracks for the low price of... free is hard to beat. Like the new small loop they added, with a breathtaking view on top !
  • Went snow shoeing for the first time with a more experienced friend. Great fun! A winter nature getaway right in the city. Rent cross country skis, show shoes or skates here or bring your own.
  • Beautiful all year round! In winter is possible to enjoy cross country skying and snowshoeing! Great place!
  • Living in front of the Plains of Abraham really is a blessing. This is a HUGE park with some amazing sceneries. Jogging in the summer, cross-country skiing in the winter, and every other outdoor activity you can imagine...
