Winter season - South Shore Bike Link and Route Verte

The Route Verte on Parc Jean Drapeau's premises, the Seaway dike bicycle path and the bike route on the Champlain Ice Control Structure will remain open for cyclists until December 2, weather permitting., although they will not be maintained. Starting on November 18, there will be no transit to the South Shore because of construction work by the City of Saint-Lambert : the alternative route to get to Montréal will be the Jacques-Cartier Bridge bike path.

Slow Traffic on Chemin Macdonald

October 27 to December 13, 2019

Due to construction work, traffic on Chemin Macdonald is expected to be slow from October 27 to December 13, 2019. A section of the road will be reduced to one lane on which vehicles will be able to circulate alternately. Furthermore, the vertical space available to vehicular traffic will be reduced to 3.8 meters under the Concorde Bridge during this period.

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.

A unique place to celebrate your wedding

A unique place to celebrate your wedding

Parc Jean-Drapeau is a unique place to celebrate your wedding day in a chic and rustic setting, which is sure to make it an extraordinary and truly memorable experience. The Parc has a wealth of distinctive features, including its lush landscape, proximity to the Saint Lawrence River, and its awesome views of downtown Montréal.

Rental halls

For the day of your dreams, Parc Jean-Drapeau has two magnificent rental halls that are among the finest venues you will find in Montréal:

Both of these halls boast expansive window space, which lets in natural light, and an adjacent outdoor terrace which will allow your guests to admire the surrounding nature while they're sipping a cocktail.

The Gardens

The halls are also bordered by the Floralies Gardens, which are ideal for an intimate and romantic celebration or for photo sessions, during which you can get as creative as you want to preserve and perpetuate this special occasion.

In addition to the colourful gardens, there are many background settings that make for a great photo op! Whether it's the Biosphere, the Casino de Montréal that's all lit up, or downtown Montréal, these symbolic sites will create distinctive and timeless memories.

Tailored to your liking

Everyone has their own view of what they think the ideal wedding ceremony should be; that's why we offer two halls that have no restrictions. You choose your own decorator, caterer, DJ and host. There is no exclusive supplier and there are no catering royalties.

Our halls include a bar space and well-equipped kitchens with all of the amenities to stage a seamless event.

You can also bring your own alcoholic drinks for your evening, by obtaining a liquor permit (an adviser will provide you with the details about applying for a permit).
