With family or friends, Parc Jean-Drapeau is “the” place to be
There’s no time for boredom at Parc Jean-Drapeau this summer! Just 5 minutes from downtown Montréal, the Parc, which is highly regarded for its diverse cultural and sports program, is the ideal place for an outing with the family or among friends. Thanks to our facilities, events and partners, you’ll find something to appeal to every taste!
Take up the challenge
With more than 40 rides and attractions, adults and youngsters will be in their glory at La Ronde. Plus, there’s a brand new feature! Starting on May 20, thrill-seekers are invited to climb aboard the Titan: a giant pendulum that will take you on a stunning and electrifying journey.
For those who prefer having fun in the water rather than in the air, Aquazilla will be back at Jean-Doré Beach once the popular water spot opens on June 23. Put family and friends to the test by wending through an obstacle course or taking up the series of challenges on the unique inflatable structure comprised of obstacles, slides and platforms.
Through its museums, gardens and public art works, the Parc is a place of discovery, in nice or not-so nice weather, in summer as well as winter.
Learn more about the major environmental issues at the Biosphere, Environment Museum, and celebrate the influence of European civilizations in New France and North America at the Stewart Museum.
Time permitting, cap off your visit by touring the Floralies Gardens to discover the wonders of nature, including lagoons and the myriad species of flowers, trees and shrubs. A collection of 15 public art works, most of which were done for Expo 67, can be viewed for free along the trails and gardens of Parc Jean-Drapeau.
Get physically active
On the ground and in the water, the Parc offers a wide range of sporting activities: stay in shape by cycling along the Route Verte, get familiar with Stand-Up Paddleboarding at Jean-Doré Beach, take part in a friendly volleyball match and travel through the lagoons in a canoe or kayak.
You’ll find what you’re looking for, whether you are a seasoned sports practitioner or merely seeking some casual entertainment.
Have loads of fun
Summer at the Parc is synonymous with events. Come and indulge in a truly extraordinary experience at one of the many sports, cultural or recreational events that are staged at the Parc every year. Be part of the crowd at major events such OSHEAGA and the Grand Prix du Canada, or go on a family outing at Week-ends du Monde or on one of Jean-Doré Beach’s theme days.
