Vivid island with loads of different things to do, get there with metro and go around the island with a bus. Great for families with kids, beach clean, u have sun or shadow under trees, food simple and ok, entrance fee to the plage is only $9 after 16h. Water could be cleaner, but great place to rest and enjoy... More

Want to take a brake from the urban jungle? Just hit the subway towards Parc Jean-Drapeu, take the shuttle bus to the beach (plage). A bonus is a walk on legendary F1 track Circuit Gilles Villeneuves.

Had a great time here at Osheaga Festival which has really grown into one of the best music festivals in Canada boasting some top end artists. Be prepared for very very large crowds as more than 45,000 people attend each day. The location is really prime for concerts and their is a lot of fun to be had!

There's a genuine Formula 1 track where you can drive your car, albeit slowly. Ride your bicycles or rent a Bixi one. I attended a Picknik Elektronique there and enjoyed it very much. But mostly it's just a park to relax and enjoy quiet time outside of the city.

We spent about 3 hours here - it was nice but not super special. Good to get... More

This park has many options for individuals, couples, or families. Starting with the Aquatic Pool Complex which has three spacious pools. Rentals bike stations are available so you can bike the whole park. Beach area also available if you don't like pools. Nice bar&grill on premises. Metro yellow line brings you directly into the park area. Would recommend a whole... More

We visited the parc for the swimming championships with a 96yr old with limited mobility. While the main pool has decent facilities the secondary pool facilities were dismal. We had relocatables for change rooms and porta potties for toilets.

Carole at the Hotel l'Abri du Voyageur suggested going here and what a great suggestion it was. My nine year old granddaughter fully enjoyed the water and beach area. Although I had to pay to enter (can't swim due to swimmers ear), it was well worth the admission fee of $9 for me and $4.50 for her (13 and under).... More

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.
