  • Somewhere relaxed to be able to walk or ride a bike, when I visited was in repair an area of the park so I could not take it all, but I liked

  • A very nice Park that is Jean-Drapeau, whether it is for its circuit of F1, its casino, theme park, its swimming pool, the biosphere or simply to walk around or participate in the electronic picnik, you find a lot of things to do. Easily accessible by metro, it is ideal to spend an afternoon alone or with family. Several points of view on the city and centered in the middle of the St. Lawrence.

  • Bought tickets to Ile Soniq last year (which are fairly expensive) honestly had a terrible time the whole weekend, after a big festival like this you're exhausted from the walking in a normal venue, b...  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(?)
