Fun to go round the course by bike

Our kids (5, 7, 9) loved taking tandems round the course. They wanted to do it three times (!), one round takes around 20 mins at an easy pace. Tandems are $25/hr. The rental is... read more

I have never attended a race here but being able to drive your car on the actual track is awesome. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Montreal because I am a huge F1 fan and now I can say I have driven an F1 course on the current schedule. Just make sure you don't go over... More

Really cool experience to bike around the track. Just make sure to pay attention for the cyclists tearing around their training runs.

We've attended other F1 races in Europe and I just assumed that all of them are big disastrously mishandled events. This, on the other hand, was highly organized in a very nice setting (a park for crying out loud!). Lots of concessions, toilets, medics, etc. Our seats were at the Senna Corner and I'm pretty sure we had the best... More

Safe, secluded and well maintained. What a place to go and do a sprint or just stroll around and take a swim. A truly unique experience in a fantastic place

When Fi series race comes to town this place awakens to a loving frenzied crowd.The city caters well to international clientèle ,since our city is reknown for it's European flavor.Also,the name brings warm memories of it's namesake,who lost his life doing what he loved most.

Last Saturday morning I rented a scooter and went to the circuit. You can ride in the circuit for free. The speed limit is 30km/h (boring, but safe), but if you are a F1 fan, that's a must do while in Montreal.

Staying in Parc Jean-Drapeau

Neighborhood Profile
Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space still retains its inherited carnival character. A wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks, and exploration. Old exhibitions still straddle the newest entertainment complexes, including the high-flying roller coasters of La Ronde Amusement Park and the brightly-lit Casino de Montréal. From the springtime on, families crowd the sandy beaches with candy-striped umbrellas, and rowers take to the Olympic Basin, where the spherical American Pavilion and the high brick Tour de Lévis provide an atypical backdrop. A short metro trip carries visitors and locals to this vacationing spot, providing leisure and activity outside of the inner city.
