Access to the park is free and there appears to be free parking available (I think it's time-limited). I had parked elsewhere so enjoyed the walk thru the park. There are cannons pointing out to the St Lawrence River and a couple of watchtowers (you can enter these but they were closed when I was there). A great experience combining... More

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 way to spend some rainy day hours.

On a nice day (warm or cold) it is worth the walk to grab a bit of history and enjoy being outdoors.

This park only covers a fraction of the area of the actual battle of the Plains of Abraham, but it's still a beautiful park with cannons and fortifications for the history buffs. It also has a great view of the St. Lawrence River. It's a great place to wander around on a warm spring, summer or fall day.

It was a bit hard to locate this park as I didn't see much signage. It could also be the fact that snow and ice covered much of the park too. We parked on the side of the road and walked up to the fenced balcony overlooking the lake and the city. It was absolutely stunning. I'm an avid kdrama... More

This is a fantastic place to enjoy with family. People go there for picnics. It has historic significance. Could not spend much time due to sudden rain.
