Getting to the Parc

Things to do at the Parc

Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands, which comprise Parc Jean-Drapeau, are located in the Ville-Marie borough, in the heart of the Saint Lawrence River.

Visitors can use several means of transportation to get to the Parc, which is linked to Montréal and the South Shore by two bridges: by bike, bus, car, taxi or on foot.

During the summer season, there is a river shuttle that enables visitors to travel between Montréal's Vieux-Port area and the islands' green spaces.

But taking the subway is still the best way to come to Parc Jean-Drapeau! Served by a subway station that's open year-round, the Parc is connected to the city's entire public transit system.

Subway Station

The Jean-Drapeau subway station is part of the yellow line that crosses the Saint Lawrence River between the island of Montréal and Longueuil. The subway exits are located at Espace 67. With its central positioning, the subway provides quick and easy access to the entire Parc.
