Spanning two islands in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, the Parc Jean-Drapeau is home to a multitude of facilities and recreational opportunities. This green oasis is a haven for sports, recreation, nature and culture. A network of multi-disciplinary trails–25 km (15 miles) of which are cycling paths–wind through a lush natural setting accentuated throughout by valuable public artworks and open up to magnificent panoramas of the river and the adjacent downtown skyline. Come summer, the park offers a beach, three heated outdoor pools, La Ronde amusement park, two museums and a casino. This exceptional location hosts a variety of festivals and events all year long.
Open to the public from 6:00 a.m. to midnight; it is prohibited to be in the park beyond the hours of operation. Authorizations could be provided for special activities or events. Parc Jean-Drapeau's bike link between the south shore (Saint-Lambert) and Montréal is open from mid-April to the end of October (6 a.m. to 10 p.m.).
