Ile Notre Dame is one of two islands in the middle of the St Lawrence river, in the middle of Montreal. It is a large, attractive park that reminds us of the Toronto islands, except you can get to these islands by car and by subway. Two weeks of the year it is home to the Canadian Formula 1 Grand...

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.

Ile Notre-Dame was built for the 1967 World Exposition in Montreal. It is now home to the Formula One Grand Prix as well as a huge amusement park called La Ronde. 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
