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.

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.

I liked it because it is also the location of the Plains of Abraham, where the British defeated the French in 1759. +It's the place where 'O Canada' was sung for the first time in 1880.

Nice area for walking and enjoying the scenery, but it is hilly so be ready! Not much shelter so dress appropriately for the weather.

it's a lovely park, the weather was so-so drizzly when we walked through.. it's pretty and probably would have been a better choice on a sunny day.

A wonderful place to visit both out of doors and indoors at the adjacent museum. There is a huge table display of the Plain of Abraham in the museum that must be seen along with upper sections showcasing various period military uniforms and such. Nice...More

When we were there, a lot of people just parked on the side of the road "L'Avenue George VI". It may have been illegal but there were so many cars I don't think they were afraid of getting ticketed. We parked for free on... More
