This is a lovely island, where the Canadian Grand Prix is held each year on a street circuit. The island can be reached by Metro - the yellow line to Jean Drapeau station gets you there easily. The Park Jean Drapeau is worth visiting as it is a beautiful unspoiled place with great walking tracks.

It's a fun place to be, quite noisy during Grand Prix week, and filled with families during the summer. Used to go there a lot as a young adult!... More
