In the heart of Québec: the Battlefields Park.

One of Canada’s most important historical parks;
One of the most prestigious city parks. 

Welcome to the Plains of Abraham!

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.

Since 1908, the National Battlefields Commission, a federal government agency, is responsible for the preservation and development of this ideal gathering place where four million visitors are welcomed annually.
