Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Montreal

4.3
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.

  • We went in August, that the circuit was closed to traffic and we could wander around the circuit. There is an artificial Beach very close.

  • As a big fan of F1 I was so happy to have a chance to visit the circuit and to ride around. I stopped and took pictures there. Fun to see for most Formula One fans.  more »

  • Best venue for a Formula 1 race in my opinion. I've been here every year since 1996 for the F1 Grand Prix du Canada and the place is always electric. Hundreds of people, music blasting, cars flying by, there is nothing like it. So much to see and do even when cars are not on the track. Definitely recommend to walk the entire island and enjoy it and experience how awesome this place truly is.
  • Iconic place open all year long except during race weekends. You can bike, walk, or drive on the legendary circuit Gilles Villeneuve. I don't know much place in the world where anyone can go drive on a F1 circuit for free.
  • Best venue on the Formula 1 schedule. It's the first week of June in Montreal which means the most perfect weather and the most beautiful and competitive track.
  • Fantastic park between island. But not ideal for Formula 1 spectators with cheap tickets. Hard to see anything.
  • I was at the casino and this phone ask me to rate circuit gilles villeneuve in febuary, luckily ive been to the last 2 grand prix of canada and i can legit say it was fkn awsome 10/10 would visit again
