Owner description: Located on Ile Notre-Dame, the 4.361 km-long Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve hosts the Grand Prix du Canada, as well as biking, in-line skating, jogging and walking enthusiasts! PARTIAL CLOSURE The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will be partially closed to cyclists, pedestrians and inline skates enthusiasts from May 15 to September 4, 2017 due to the mounting, the hosting and demounting of major events, to maintenance work done on the circuit in preparation for the Grand Prix du Canada, and to the STM bus circuit to Jean-Dore beach. This partial closure means two things: • The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will be accessible to cyclists, pedestrians and inline skates enthusiasts for only 43 non consecutive days this summer, from May 15 to September 4, 2017. Visite the Parc Jean-Drapeau website for the detailed schedule. • A portion of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the "Hairpin" area, will be inaccessible at all time time from May 15 to September 4, 2017.

If you enjoy F1 racing then if you are around June in Montreal you have to watch this GP. One of the most technical, beautifully located GP circuits in the F1 lineup. Great people, fantastic roaring experience, if engine noise does not bother you, great weekend experience.

one of the driver's favourite stops on the F1 circuit.
great layout, easy to get to - you can take the subway right to the island/track.

It's nice to see it when it's not a F1 track and it has beautiful walking, biking, rollerblading trails. Take the subway and give yourself 3 hours to walk around the beautiful gardens.

Wonderful views of the city, and a great experience to visit the circuit by bycicle (you can hire them wherever in MTL)!

Ride the F1 circuit just like the majority of the bike crazy montrealais, or think that you are following in the wheel tracks of some motor racing greats. Busy but not overly so my son was keen to race round, my daughter happy to potter along on this flat island circuit. Just fun.
