About
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.

Nice park for some quality time

Located in St. Helena's Island, Jean Drapeau is a big park where you can fell a great sense quietude. It is accessible by metro from Montreal. The park is very big and normally not very crowded, though that could change on weekend. There are a number of places and installments to e explore, among which Biosphere is the most iconic one.

Not a good time to visit

The Park is huge and looks pretty, but there’s nothing open right now and nothing to do. No restaurant/Cafe. The casino is open, but it’s terrible. It would be cool to ride a bike around.

This public park located to the east of downtown Montreal is easily accessible by metro. It is nice to walk around. It comprises 2 islands and one gets beautiful views of the surroundings, while walking though the park. Certainly worth visiting.

Ridiculously expensive parking!
Sep. 2019
The park itself was nice enough...had a good walk; checked out the Olympic Rowing site & the Biosphere. Also walked the entire area around the Biosphere. Was a quiet Tuesday afternoon so not much going on. Shocked at the price of parking...$14 for two hours! Would expect to pay that if there was some kind of event going on but a September mid-week afternoon did not warrant $7/hr.

Beautiful Park
Sep. 2019 • Friends
Was in town for the Pokémon Go Safari event at Parc Jean-Drapeau and I have to say how amazing it is to have a beautiful park like this so close to the downtown area. It’s got a nice walking track, beautifully landscaped and a nice looking beach. The giant totem pole is really cool to see as well. Would love to visit again on a normal day without so many people to really enjoy the sights and see the racetrack

Great two islands to visit

We walked around the area near the American Pavillon and were pleasantly surprised to find that the entire area was great to walk around!
There is even an outdoor pool - public too!

Nice Parc
Aug. 2019 • Family
We spent two days on the Parc. The first day we visited the Biosphère and the swimming pool. There was limited places to eat. We found a takeaway but honestly it was the longest wait ever.

The kids had a great day and enjoyed both activities.

The following day we headed over to La Ronde. Again, the kids had a ball.

The Parc was easy to get to view Metro.
