My Park, My Plains

To mark the 100th anniversary of the National Battlefields Commission, My Park, My Plains provides a humorous and moving account of defining historical moments and various uses of the Plains of Abraham over the years. Through an interplay of archival images and original footage, the film recounts the battles fought there, reminds us that people once golfed, went horseback riding and applauded Buffalo Bill there. The site is now popular with skiers, Sunday strollers and tobogganers. Hundreds of thousands of people come each year to attend grand celebrations and festivals. The Plains of Abraham have always been a choice meeting place for Quebec City's visitors and locals, and today more than ever, this historic urban park is a prime location for remembering, relaxing and dreaming.
