A jewel nestling in the St. Lawrence River, Parc Jean-Drapeau is without doubt one of Montreal most precious assets and a one-of-a-kind place in Canada.
Discover this riche urban park spread amongst Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands and enjoy outdoor activities including kilometres of cycling paths, the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, public art, colourful gardens and walking trails that provide an amazing view of downtown Montréal. The park is also home to partners like the Casino de Montréal, La Ronde, Stewart Museum, the Biosphere and environment museum.
Heir of Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympic Games, Parc Jean-Drapeau continues to inspire million of visitors annually by the quality of its facilities including its rental venues and diversified programming, both cultural (Osheaga, Heavy Montreal, Piknic Electronik, winter festival, etc.) and sports (F1 Canadian Grand Prix, dragon boat races, etc.).
Due to the development of a new and modern natural amphitheatre, construction works are currently underway in the southern sector of St. Helens’ Island restricting access to certain activity and mobility around the park. The use of public transportation to get to the Parc Jean-Drapeau is strongly suggested. Visit our website to plan your visit and learn more about how to get to each attraction.
