Overview

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.

Beautifully situated. Just make sure to arrive earlier as there is a bottleneck at security on bridges during the GP.

Attended the 2018 F1 race, quite a spectacle in itself, great event. Food was expensive but not unlike any other major event.

Fantastic classic motor-racing circuit with great overtaking opprtunities for the high speed cars. Easy to get to via the Metro and easy to get around once there. "Beach" area inside the circuit is very pleasant. Grandstand bench-seats are very uncomfortable, a real killer for longer...More

One of the older “classic” F1 tracks which the drivers seem to like a lot. Good viewing areas, particularly at the hairpin, but the track is not as fan friendly as some of the newer facilities. There are limited areas for the food vendors and...More

Great track one of the more exciting FI venues. Nice to see Ferrari win this year. The town goes all out for this event. It makes for enjoyable experience. The crowd is really into the race and ready after all the weekend events

Went to the 2018 F1 Grand Prix - fabulous venue for a race. Could do with permanent toilet blocks instead of bad portaloos everywhere. They also need to either make the bridges larger to cope with more people or manage the flow of people better....More

Once you reach your grandstand, all is well. There are only a couple of access points and it is a long walk to get there. The park setting is beautiful and it is great that such a nice facility is right in the city. We...More

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,

There is no reserved parking for spectators at the track. It is possible to reserve a parking space near a metro station or the Old Port of Montreal water shuttle.
