Hiking

All year

With more than 25 kilometres of roads and trails, Parc Jean-Drapeau provides an outdoor escape in the heart of nature, just a few steps from downtown Montréal.

Whether it's on the shores of the water, on Mont Boullé near the Tour de Lévis, along the stream near the Poudrière, in the Floralies gardens, or on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, the Parc is an enjoyable place for hiking. It becomes "the" place to be for nature and photography enthusiasts.

Winter

Winter creates an enchanting and magical environment. Contemplate the beautiful landscape which will melt your heart. Walk alongside the St. Lawrence River and watch the sometimes frozen, sometimes high flow water and enjoy the tranquility while breathing fresh air.

Spring

The Parc is reborn in the spring with the melting of snow, budding and flowering tulips and daffodils and maple season. It's the return of migratory birds and animals that hibernated... Moreover, it is not uncommon to see a groundhog sneak into the trails!

Summer

In the summer, the Parc is busy! There are a multitude of activities to do with family or friends. Add to your walk a picnic in the sun or in the shade under the trees and that's a nice way to enjoy your visit on the shore of the St. Lawrence River!

Fall

We must take advantage of all the autumnal beauty nature offers us. Warm, bright colors ignite the Parc while the animals make their provisions for the cold season.
