  • We went to Jean Drapeau Park during the Festival of snow, and we found the really great place. Ice rink, dog trainer, ice sculpting contest a great place where Montrealers have seemed to enjoy to visit family. Attention however, it must be fitted with a pass... Don't also miss to taste the Beaver tails, a sort of flat doughnut, local specialty. Yum!

  • There's a lot of construction work going on at the moment. I'm sure it will be lovely when it's done but at the moment the construction work will significantly limit what you can see and several trail...  more »
  • The park is being renovated now. Waste if time. Closed attractions. Don't bother to go here. It's far from the city center and not worth it.  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(?)
