Admire an impressive race track, used throughout the year for a host of recreational activities, at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. First opened in 1978, the track provides the venue for the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix. Instead of laying dormant for the rest of the year, the track opens to the public as part of a park located on the same artificial island. Come here to run, bike, skate, and drive on the professional race track, admiring the design of its 13 turns and viewing platforms.

  • The island itself is beautiful. There's lots of thing to do on ile st helene. You can go to the beach, casino, la ronde, enjoy a nice stroll through the forest, etc. It's a nature vibe right outside the city.
  • Easy to get to with one subway stop from the central station on the main island of Montreal. Very picturesque location with beautiful gardens. It's a race track that's also a pleasure to walk around. Having said that, bathroom facilities could be better.
  • My first F1 race! It was a ton of fun and there was a lot to see. However they could do better with viewing for general admission. I know that you can only expect so much but there is a lot of the track completely out of view from anybody, I would also have definitely liked more screens. There were hardly any and it was really the only way to keep track of what was happening.
  • The Race Track is too good. I watched the race from the Popular 2 Grandstand, since there was no TV in vicinity, we were mostly blinded of what was happening in the race. There was live radio commentary but I could not take advantage of this. The 2 jets flying over the racetrack, right after the Anthem was played, is really the icing on the cake. The ground staff including security personnel were very courteous.
  • Great track, Easy access using the metro yellow line and amazing view. The track is part of formula 1 calendar, usually beginning on june.
