Battlefields Park was created in 1908 at the site of clashes between the British and French armies led by Wolfe and Montcalm (1759), and then Murray and Lévis (1760). The Plains of Abraham are recognized as one of the most prestigious urban parks in the world, a celebration of recreational activity, culture and history. Several walking trails criss-cross the park, leading to spectacular viewpoints and countless attractions, activities and exhibitions visitors can appreciate year-round.
