Plains of Abraham

Plains of Abraham Review

This park, named after Abraham Martin, who used the plains as a pasture for his cows, is the site of the famous 1759 battle that decided New France's fate. People cross-country ski here in winter and in-line skate in summer. At the Discovery Pavilion of the Plains of Abraham, check out the multimedia display, "Odyssey: A Journey Through History on the Plains of Abraham," which depicts 400 years of Canada's history.
