Spanning two islands in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, the Parc Jean-Drapeau is home to a multitude of facilities and recreational opportunities. This green oasis is a haven for sports, recreation, nature and culture. A network of multi-disciplinary trails–25 km (15 miles) of which are cycling paths–wind through a lush natural setting accentuated throughout by valuable public artworks and open up to magnificent panoramas of the river and the adjacent downtown skyline. Come summer, the park offers a beach, three heated outdoor pools, La Ronde amusement park, two museums and a casino. This exceptional location hosts a variety of festivals and events all year long.
