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.

the metro is so easy to figure out. and what an amazing view the dome is, whether astounding you during the day with its height or at night with the lights. wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking miles.

Well worth spending the time to walk around the Park especially around the Grand Prix circuit, this is a great place for a day out and see parts of the expo 76. Take a picnic and chill for the day.

A good place to escape from the rush of the city. It is very green, calm and serene. You can bike or walk or swim as well because there is a beach also.

You should not miss this attraction in Montreal. Such an icon and it's not far from the Casino. If you go to the Formula 1 race this is literally there on the track.

Great place for walking and visiting the Bio sphere. Access via the Yellow Metro line makes it easy.. and you can catch a bus to the Casino just about 3 minute walk from the Metro station.

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,

Hi! I would say that visitors stay about 3 hours at the Parc if they visit a Museum (Stewart and Biosphere), have a picnic and do some cycling on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. You should check the website parcjeandrapeau as... More
