Again, we were trudging through this park through the snow which made it difficult so we saw the highlights from afar. It is a beautiful, very large Canadian Urban Park. With cannons and artillery pieces throughout the park. The Martello tower was a beautiful example...More

Kids 7 and 5 loved the educational experience. For adults too. Great interactive activities from drumming and dressup to learn how the battles changed the face of North America. Many more questions afterward. A good way to start the discussion.

Just walking through this area is a history lesson with all the plaques up around the place informing you on what happened and when.

For the history buffs this is a must, you walk the fields of the battle and while we were there the local school had a re enactment of the battle which was fantastic to watch the children learning about the history by living it.

There's not much to see in winter, but we went by on our bus tour of the city. The history is that the opposing generals were both killed at the same time during the battle there.

Worth the ride up the hill to see the historic fields and the views of the St. Lawrence. A perfect park to ride through on bicycles. Enjoyed learning about the history of the battle too.
