It's huge urban park in Quebec city, by the st laurent River with steep cliff, it's the site of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, part of the French and Indian War, which was itself part of the Seven Years' War. On September 13, 1759, British soldiers under the command of General Wolfe, climbed the steep cliff under the city in darkness, surprising and defeating the French, through a single deadly volley of musket fire, causing the battle to be over within 30 minutes. Both Wolfe and the French commander, the Marquis de Montcalm, died of their wounds, but the battle left control of Quebec City to the British, eventually allowing them to take control of Canada the following year. Visitors can drive through the park, there are memorial cannon along the road, some used in WW1/2, the park has view of the river, and huge grass land, there is lots of activities held here year round. You have to visit here if in the Quebec city
