Frequently Asked Questions

How does the displacing of major events have an impact on the Beach's activities?
Answer+

The only impact in connection with the Beach is the bus route between the drop‑off area located at the Jean‑Drapeau subway station exit and the Beach. When the Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve will be closed, the bus will take an alternative route to go to the Beach.

The new bus route will take the Concorde Bridge to go to a new drop‑off spot set up near the Pavillon du Canada parking. The north entrance of the Beach, located just next to the Pavillon des activités nautiques, will be the entrance used by shuttle users to access the Beach.

Can visitors go to the Beach by car?
Answer+

Yes, but it is strongly suggested to used public transportation due to the limited number of parking spaces.

Can visitors go to the Beach by bike?
Answer+

Cyclists coming from the South Shore bike link or the Concorde Bridge will be able to reach the Beach without a problem. However, when the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is closed, cyclists transiting by St. Helen's Island will have to leave their bike at the bike stands near the subway station and use the Beach STM shuttle.

Is it allowed to smoke at the Beach?
Answer+

Under the Tobacco Control Act, smoking is prohibited at Jean-Doré Beach. People who wish to smoke must leave the Beach area and go to the designated zones.

Are dogs allowed at the Beach?
Answer+

All dogs are allowed at the Parc, except at the Beach, the Aquatic Complex and the Athletes' Quarters, provided they are kept on a leash.
