The Battlefields Park includes the Plains of Abraham with Des Braves Park, both within Quebec City, and forms one of the few Canadian national urban parks. Its significance lies in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the British victory over France, which decided the development of Canada. Established as a park by law on March 17, 1908, it features an interpretive centre and walking trails, and is sometimes used for outdoor concerts, especially during the national festival events . The park contains a collection of about 50 historical artillery pieces scattered about its grounds. It is managed by the National Battlefields Commission, a federal government agency under the Minister of Canadian Heritage with members appointed by the Queen in her Canadian, Ontarian, and Québécois Councils.

I really like this park. Not sure exactly why but I think it's a combination of the fact that it's very historically important, it had many hills and valleys, it was so quiet and peaceful, and it was full of vegetation... Read the history before you go, the geographical and structural nature of it have contributed to the way battles turned out and history got shaped

This is one of the most important historic sites anywhere in Canada because it was here that the modern history of Canada was determined. The government has done a good job in retaining well groomed open spaces so one can get a feel for the famous battle that took place here. It's best to employ a guide when driving along the route to learn as much history as possible but a good brochure will do in a pinch.

The best place to relax in Quebec City. Summer will be a joy all around this park. The comfort feeling of being in a peaceful city rid of the big city problems and bad people will make you add hours of enjoyment and bliss while strolling about these grassy, monumental landscapes. History was here too. It's an added cultural event knowing what happened through your environment as you sink in the atmosphere.
