This island is a man-made island from the mayor Jean Drapeau. It was created at the same time they were building the Metro system in MTL. All the soil came from the Metro station. The Island has the Casino and you still see some of...More

Whether it was just too early in the year...but the place seemed deserted and extremely run down. Shocked that the Grand Prix is only 2 weeks away and the place was a mess.... gardens needed so much attention, and general public areas looked sad.

Parc Jean-Drapeau is on the site of Expo 67. It is a great place to ride bikes, although the Bixi (city rental) bikes have to be checked in every half hour. That made it tough to take a long bike ride. There's an aquatic center...More

Did you know that the Montreal Casino used to be the French Pavilion at the 1967 world Expo? The audio tour from Portrait Sonore about the Expo 67 site, includes buildings which are still there as well as photos of those that were dismantled. The...More

Parking fees $6.50/h everywhere in the parc. The parc has been deserted by Montrealers. You may go by metro, but it's remote from all points of the parc. Families with kids have no choice to come by car, but no longer possible because of the...More

There is a great vision for this area and I am confident it will be a great attraction in the coming years. For now, it's simply a nice place to walk and get away from the hustle-bustle of Montreal. I will say, however, that it...More

Biodome was the main attraction for us here. However, there was closed since it was a holiday. Outside of the biodome had an art exhibition which was pretty good. It would be a great place to take children to and to walk and explore especially...More

Had a nice time doing some hiking and walking around, but that was pretty much it. I visited in early April, so many outdoor attractions weren't open for the season yet. I was also disappointed that the day I visited, the Biosphere was closed. Probably...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,

How much time do you spend there? How much is the ferry and where can we catch it from? Is a guided tour needed or can I easily wander around the city? Is there a special view that can be seen there which makes it worthwhile to visit? With only a short period in Montreal, would you say this is a must do item to see?

Hi! I would say that visitors stay about 3 hours at the Parc if they visit a Museum (Stewart and Biosphere), have a picnic and do some cycling on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. You should check the website parcjeandrapeau as... More
