Plains of Abraham reviews
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. more »
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... more »
This is one of the most historic places in Canada and every Canadian should see it at least once. For me, it made the whole event real and gave me a new appreciation for my heritage. It is very easy to imagine how the battle unfolded as much of the area is intact. I have developed a profound respect for the French, their culture and history as a result of visiting this place and I feel even more like a true Canadian.
It's a great place, and huge, for sports in the winter, or any season. Cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, skating, and jogging, there's someone doing these almost at anytime, day or night, no matter how cold. The views are spectacular and the proximity of cafes is a bonus.
