Take the subway!

The Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve will again be accessible to pedestrians and cyclists on August 21. During the closure of Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve, cyclists and pedestrians that want to get to Jean‑Doré Beach will have to take the Route Verte or the free 767 shuttle from the Jean‑Drapeau subway station.

Aside from the exceptional closure on Saturday, August 19, the South Shore Bike Link and the Route Verte on Île Notre‑Dame will remain open throughout the summer season.

Aquatic Complex closed for the 2017 season

January 1st to December 31, 2017

Due to construction work near the Aquatic Complex, it will be closed to public and athletes for the 2017 season. Swimmers will still be able to come enjoy the water at Parc Jean‑Drapeau this summer at Jean‑Doré Beach.

Plan your trip and avoid unpleasant surprises by consulting often the important notices or the schedule of activities and events that are of interest to you.

Parc Jean-Drapeau
Echo 67

Everything was good in '67! Fifty million people crossed the turnstiles of the World Exposition and over eight hundred unique and futuristic-looking buildings also appeared in the Montreal cityscape. In six months, Montreal opened up to the world and to major global issues.

Fifty years later, Echo 67 looks back at the environmental and cultural legacy of the international fair. Pictures, testimonies, anecdotes and artifacts from the event will make older visitors nostalgic and inspire younger ones.
