Parc Jean-Drapeau, which is comprised of the two islands, Sainte-Helene and Notre-Dame, is in a state of constant effervescence. With an array of recreational and event-related attractions, it's a one-of-a-kind place in Canada. Renowned for its diverse cultural and sports programming, it is the perfect place for family, couples and friends getaways, only 5 minutes from downtown Montreal! Accessible par public transportation (Jean Drapeau station), by bike or by car.
Heir of Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympic Games, Parc Jean-Drapeau continues to inspire our 1.7 million 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 on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, FINA Masters Championships, dragon boat races, Olympic pool, etc.).
