About
Site of major battles, the Battlefields Park includes the Plains of Abraham and Des Braves Park. Apart from its historical past, the Park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. The Plains of Abraham Museum is the gateway to the Park, offering exhibitions, activities, services and all information for your visit. Year-round, dive into history with an interactive exhibition on the battles of Québec and an exhibition on artefacts from the Park's archeological collection. From July to the end of October, explore the Plains of Abraham with the Escape Bag Rally or a family treasure hunt. Discover also the dark side of the Plains with fun and terrifying activities for all ages during Halloween and the Month of the Dead. In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or ice skating! Equipment rental on site ($).

History Preserved

You do not realize how big the plains are until you are actually walking there! Once you visit the museum and the tower, you can picture what it was like in the past. Along the way, there are various commemorative plaques that are very informative. This is a nice area to walk and picnic. The views from some areas are very beautiful! The area is well kept and clean.

I've moved to Quebec in April 2020. I can't get enough from my walks at the park as it is just five minutes walk from my home. It is one of my daily routines to which I am so attached to.

Green park with views and history
Jul. 2021
Be prepared to walk a lot. This is a huge park in the city and it is full of things to do and history. There is space to exercise, a playground for the kids, water splash, city views, the belle art museum it is also there. Access to the lower old city. Beautiful green spaces and gardens. FREE activity!

great for a snowy walk with friends
Dec. 2019
Great area to explore, even on a windy cold day! We enjoyed walking around in the snow and looking out at the icy river from a great vantage point. Our visit was in early December, so the winter sports rental options were not open yet. We went through the small museum and looked at some of the artifacts, but we mostly just enjoyed being outdoors in the snow!

Nice vista over the st Laurence channel, green pastures with plenty of places to sit and relax
The scene of a historic battle, and before that the farm of a farmer named Abraham Martin (hence the name)

Nice green heaven
Aug. 2020 • Couples
We had to climb up 400 stairs to get to the plains as we were down by the river when we decided to go visit the plains but it was worth the climb (if you walk from the upper city/chateau Frontenac you won't have the climb all those stairs) we didn't walk the full length as it was quite hot on that day but we really enjoyed the view and the beautiful gardens. It is especially enjoyable on sunny days with a small breeze!

green and natural area

This site of a battle is now a lush green park. We drove some of the roads through it. You could almost believe that you were out in the wilds!

The Battle that Change History: Britain victorious Win Quebec and Canada
Jul. 2019
Hiking on the Plains of Abraham provided a panoramic view of Old Quebec City. It is breathtaking and will give pause to the beauty of it all. The British were fighting the French and Indian War in America and the Seven Years War in Europe at the time of the battle on September 13, 1759. During the battle. Both General Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm died of wounds. The Plains extend to the Citadelle of Quebec and the wall of Quebec along a plateau above the St. Lawrence River.

A lot of history
Aug. 2019
A small little area with a lot of history. Our hotel was right next to this so it was my running route to run around it. It's a very well kept park and worth spending just a couple hours to explore.
