  • A little corner just outside the city where you can breathe in a really nice atmosphere. Here every year we run the Grand Prix of Montreal.

  • I went to Parc Jean-Drapeau for the Guns N' Roses concert in August 2017. The show was brilliant, incredible, mind-blowing, etc.! The grounds, however, were kind of a nightmare. It was a good 20 minut...  more »
  • We visited in mid October and it was very chilly so might be more fun to see in warmer months. On the banks of the St. Lawrence River. We left Montreal via cruise ship and the lights were pretty amazi...  more »

  • Long walk to get inside the concert. Amazing metallica concert here though
  • Half of their bike half is covered with millions, and I'm not exaggerating, millions of disease carrying flying insects coming from the water, that stick to your cloths and swarm in front of your field of vision. It's difficult to enjoy the surroundings when you're busy shielding yourself to something that looks like it came out of a biblical curse.
  • Bring your money to park your car. They want you to pay $20 to have a walk in this ordinary park. I called the administration and asked why they put fees to have us enjoy a few relaxing moments after a week of work. Well, the smart brains at the office said they consider the park a touristic attraction. It has nothing to do with any touristic attraction, it's a simple park. I pay if I park at the pool, I pay if I park at the beach, I pay if I park to see the Gilles Villeneuve track. All these are already tremendously expensive, thank you. The average income in Montreal is 40K but you are not aware because white collars make 2x or even 3x that amount on our taxes! I DON'T WANT to pay to have a walk in my park.
  • Best festival grounds I have been to yet, Forested sections as well as big open spaces allow for big crowds as well as it opens up to a variety of stages to full fill all your festival needs!
  • Nice park but note that the splash park is tiny and not worth the special trip. Also note that access to the park is limited due to construction. In addition, the playground seems to be closed(?)

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
