Just walking through this area is a history lesson with all the plaques up around the place informing you on what happened and when.

For the history buffs this is a must, you walk the fields of the battle and while we were there the local school had a re enactment of the battle which was fantastic to watch the children learning about the history by living it.

There's not much to see in winter, but we went by on our bus tour of the city. The history is that the opposing generals were both killed at the same time during the battle there.

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.

There are lots of walks/trails within this very significant open space of Quebec. Full of history. Wonderful botanical experience. Good views. Nice spot for a picnic. Lovely gardens etc.

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.

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
