Parc Jean Drapeau – A Montreal Oasis and So Much More!

Parc Jean Drapeau

Parc Jean Drapeau surrounds La Ronde is made up of two islands called Ile Sainte-Hélène and Ile Notre-Dame.

There are plenty of things to do at the park including hiking, skiing, bike paths to follow, and plenty of green space and gardens to explore.

There’s also a Formula 1 race track where the Canadian Grand Prix is hosted, in addition to the Montreal Casino and a beach.


The Parc Jean-Drapeau is ideal for a family outing with its collection of cultural and sports activities, all just a few minutes from downtown Montreal.

The park’s Aquatic Complex was renovated in 2005. It now contains an international caliber competition pool, a diving pool and a gradual-slope recreational pool, which is kid-friendly, and made with a cushioned rubber mat.
