Like a summer seaside resort, Parc Jean-Drapeau's La Guinguette invites citizens to reclaim the banks of the Saint Lawrence River in a new and colourful facility: dining tables, long chairs, a stage to accommodate outdoor shows and lighting that creates a fabulous evening ambiance.
Visitors can enjoy the many amenities which have been set up nearby: ping-pong tables, temporary swings alongside the river and green spaces for having a picnic, all in a charming water-side setting, with an incredible view of the vista of downtown Montréal.
With the vegan restaurant set up at La Guinguette, you can treat yourself to some unique food fare at Parc Jean-Drapeau, an offering that includes burgers, tapas, churros and waffles.
This people-friendly place is the perfect meeting spot for nature lovers, sports enthusiasts and families.
Parc Jean-Drapeau's La Guinguette is developing a program which features recreation, food and cultural activities that are inclusive as well as entertaining.
