A work by sculptor Henri-Georges Adam, created in 1962, the Obélisque oblique was a gift from France during Expo 67.
The sculpture's sharp forms point in different directions. Like directional arrows at the crossroads of many routes, they attest to the destiny of modern man, being solicited from all sides.

Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.
Two STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions.
777: Every day of the year, the 777 shuttle provides fast access to the Casino de Montréal.
