Parc Jean-Drapeau has been going through a substantial transformation based around sustainable development and socio-ecological transition. Considerable work has been done and is being carried out at the core of this ambitious, broad-scale project.
These development projects include:
The public strolling around Parc Jean-Drapeau can admire a dazzling landscape and fantastic view of the Saint Lawrence River and downtown Montréal. Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands make an impression through their vocation: more recreational for some, more sports-oriented for others. Either way, it adds up to a more rewarding, more significant experience for the public at large.
And now it's your turn to discover what's happening in your spacious urban park!
Espace 67: Parc Jean-Drapeau's gateway. A public place that's multi-purpose, vibrant, inspired and ready to play host to everyone on a season-round basis.
A bright, modern and private place with a stunning view in a unique spot that's a mere five minutes from downtown Montreal. Facilities specially intended for the Formula 1 racing world, which will provide local and international spectators with an astounding show and an ideal experience for the athletes and their respective teams.
The Pavillon de la Jamaïque, which is nestled amid a charming setting and is a prime rental space for weddings and corporate events, was much in need of a makeover.
The Parc has been undergoing a gradual transformation with the development of a new three-strata dense forest that is in continuity with the stages of Mont Boullé. In a few years, it will be a more ecological environment that is diversified and sensorial while providing Mont Boullé's abundant wildlife with a more spacious and balanced living space.
A historic, multi-purpose facility, the building is currently being used as a reception centre for watercraft activities at Jean-Doré Beach and it requires an upgrading that will benefit the entire summer community.
The rehabilitation work on the Grande Poudrière's ponds is much needed, both for their enhancement and providing better access to the ponds to the Parc's visitors. The work will be carried out over a two-year span and it should be completed by the summer of 2025.
The restoration of the plaine des Jeux (Playground) is one of the cornerstone projects of Parc Jean-Drapeau's Management and Development Plan! Renovations to the Playground's chalet and the picnic shelter have been underway since May 2022 and are ongoing to restore its open access to the public.
The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau has conducted renovation work on many of the Aquatic Complex's facilities to enhance the swimmers' overall experience and make the venue safe

Conçues par Louis Perron, le premier architecte paysagiste francophone canadien, les pergolas entourant la roseraie sont parvenues à la fin de leur durée de vie et ont été démantelées. Les pierres ont été récupérées en vue de la réhabilitation de la roseraie dans son entièreté, planifiée en 2025.
