We went for a nice walk with the dog. Had our packed lunch right by the canal with good view back at the city. Parc is big, nice and clean.

Where to start... We went here a couple time during our recent trip to Montreal. We parked here and biked in to old town. The bike path that runs along the shore of the island is perfect. The St. Lawrence River flowing beside you and...More

An easy transit ride from downtown (after an easy walk from Old Montreal) with lots of green space and room to roam. Don't miss the environmental museum at the Biosphere. Rowers can contact the club d'aviron de Montréal for workouts on the 2k Olympic course....More

Exciting day turned into one detour after next. Let alone the whole city is one big detour, you get to the park, it's construction on top of construction. I understand they're trying to upgrpade it, and I know that when its done, the park will...More

Took the metro across and perhaps that was the most exciting part of the trip. The parc is under "re-construction" work and coupled with barriers & mess from the previous few days music festival it was not what we were expecting. Nice to head down...More

Lovely park on the St Helen's island which is easy to reach by metro - or taxi depending where you are! There are some nice views and if you are lucky you can spot some wildlife -squirrels and beavers !

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
