Worth the ride up the hill to see the historic fields and the views of the St. Lawrence. A perfect park to ride through on bicycles. Enjoyed learning about the history of the battle too.

We drove around the park. It has some small, but pretty, gardens. Cannons everywhere. A view spot over the St. Lawrence river with free parking across the street. Mostly large expanses of lush lawn and benches facing a forest or the river.

The Battlefields Park/Plains of Abraham area is great if you are a runner, although be prepared for plenty of hills so make sure you are in shape. For non-runners, the view is spectacular and plenty of wide open spaces and roads/trails, plus many historical markers...More
