  • Plains of Abraham is a beautiful public park and a fantastic place to walk and enjoy nature. You could easily spend hours there and don't even know it. Moreover, this place is within walking distance....  more

  • I know that the park is very historic, and there are museums and such, but also, it’s just a nice big beautiful green space to walk around. Lots of green space, lots of spaces to spread out. Cute...

  • A beautiful Park to spend a nice fall afternoon. It is well maintained. It is so spacious everyone had a large open area to themselves. The views of the city are spectacular. Something for everyone in this park. There were individual picnic tables scattered throughout the park. Clean restrooms.
  • Beautiful gardens along a wonderful street with excellent examples of the evolution of Canadian architecture. The blooms for September were amazing. A must see if you love flowers and gardens accenting beautiful homes
  • This park is historic and well maintained. Beautiful exhibits and a nice place to exercise in the mornings. I wish there were more historic markers (perhaps I just missed them).
  • Beautiful park that was significant in Quebec's history. A lot of rolling green hills for picnics, and trails for biking or walking around the park and checking out the various events held around the park at different times of year.
  • I couldn't get enough of this beautiful place! One of my favorite places to be. The museum was also very good.
