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.
