Things to do at the Parc

Parc Jean-Drapeau is a vast urban park that has more than 260 hectares of space, extending over Îles Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame. With more than 25 kilometres of roads, trails and cycling paths, the best way to discover and travel around the Parc is, undoubtedly, by bike.

For people who don't have a bike or don't want to be burdened by having to bring their bike to take part in an activity or attend an event, there's a great solution: the BIXI bike rental system.

There are many BIXI stations set up during the summer season, so it's easy for someone to leave their bike once they get to the Parc or set out on an adventure after making the trip to the Parc on the subway.
