Historical books

The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau plans to publish two books with original content on the history of the Parc and some of the memorable events that have occurred there since its inception. The site has been witness to many events that are part of Montréal's history.

This dates back from the time of the first settlers, to the French and then the British occupation, the inauguration of the Parc, the staging of Expo 67 and Man and His World, and the hosting of major events such as the Olympic Games and the first Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix. Over the years, Parc Jean-Drapeau has consistently been a venue with an abundance of cultural diversity.

Pick up a copy of these two literary works which trace the Parc's evolution.

This book is a vibrant homage to our past but also a door to the future.

Valérie Plante, Mayor of Montréal

Man and His World

The pursuit of a dream

In the wake of the memorable world's fair in Montréal, there was Man and His World, a cultural and tourist place designed to extend the lifespan of Expo 67's pavilions and facilities. Relive this era through the second book created by the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau and once again immerse yourself in this special time that was such an integral part of Montréal's cultural landscape.
