Stroll through The Battlefields Park, a historical urban national park and green lung of Quebec City. Established as a park in 1908, the area contains the Plains of Abraham--site of a famous 1759 battle between British and French forces. The British victory proved decisive for the subsequent development of the nation. View numerous pieces of artillery sprawled across the park and admire the Martello towers, which the British built to defend the city against an American siege.

  • We spent an afternoon walking all around this area. It was quite a hike as the open spaces are very grand. And then we went to the Plains of Abraham Museum to learn the history of the battle.

  • The park is enormous. It spans a huge distance and had tons of historical pit stops. Lots of grassy areas to sit and play and picnic. I would say though there are two huge downfalls: 1. The paths are terrible... we had a stroller and there would often be crosswalks that did not dip down ti allow the stroller to pass easily. We had to off road. 2. The actual trails, paths, locations of different landmarks and how to get there...non existent. You have to use Google maps or wander. It is not easy nor obviois how to get everywhere. You would think with all the obvious money the government invests in Quebec City that they would improve the accessibility of their main park...
  • Depending on when you go, you can find free 1 hour parking along Av. Ontario. The main attractions aren't well marked so, if you're coming to see the Plains of Abraham or other history pieces, know where you're going before you get there.
  • Very beautiful and amazing view. A must see place if you are visiting Quebec city.
  • Nice and clean kept park to hang around or go for a walk on a nice day. There’s a few things to see and do in the vicinity to keep you busy and some paid parking available as well.
  • Summer festival in Québec is always incredible!. Come in July!
