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

Located on the plains of Abraham, this large park offers great views and an opportunity to visit a number of historic sites, including the three remaining Martello towers. One of the towers may be toured.

One of the decisive battles in Quebec's history occurred here, brief though it was. That history can be viewed in the museum, well done exhibits and video, and the fortifications, cannons etc can be viewed at a leisurely pace. It is a delightful park land,...More

This is a large part of the history of Quebec City and is a symbol of the conflict between Britain and France. We walked up the 500 or so steps from the Dufferin Terrace to the top to get to the Park.

There is a fee to visit the Citadel and museum, parkink is free but only if you do go inside to visit the Citadel, the price is quite reasonable and it's worth every penny you spend. Make sure you have at lest 3 to 4 hours... More
