  • I was there at the end of April and was still freezing, but we visited the area and it´s huge and nice. I wonder how it is on summer time. It´s also a landmark of Canada history.  more »
  • On this high plateau overlooking the St. Lawrence, the history of our ancestor is played, the English have won but our Canadian cousins have managed to keep their traditions and their language

  • So beautiful! Perfect place to cross country ski or snowshoe (you can rent equipment by the skating rink), or in the summer I’m sure jogging would be lovely. Walking is slow going in the winter, but it was still a pleasure. And obviously the right place to take in some Canadian history.
  • Beautiful Park, a lot of people everywhere, saw a man urinating by the National parks office within 50 ft of a police officer... always good to get away from home.
  • Love this place. Quebec city is an amazing touristic city to visit. Plaines d'Abraham holds concerts and unforgettable nights in the city with its young and energetic crowds from locally and abroad.
  • Amazing history, my family loved it. It was very cold but everyone had a great experience. Will be back in the summer.
  • Great large park and plenty of green space for everyone. A must visit.
