Things to do at the Parc Winter activities

Parc Jean-Drapeau offers a wealth of winter activities to allow citizens to enjoy their northern environment, without having to stray too far from urban centres. Rentals are available on site for anyone without their own equipment and wanting to try out a sport or just leisurely travel around.

The Patin Patin team, our partner this winter, is on hand near the skaters' trail to offer an array of top-notch equipment and services for an incomparable experience.


The rental service is no longer offered for the rest of the season. See you next year!

Getting to the rental center

To make it easier to get around, here is the exact location of the Patin Patin rental center at Parc Jean-Drapeau posted on Google Maps.

Subway Station

The Jean-Drapeau subway station is located on Île Sainte-Hélène, in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. To get to the Parc easily and quickly, the subway is still the best way to go!

River shuttle

During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can use the river shuttle as a means of transportation, from the Vieux-Port de Montréal (Jacques-Cartier pier) and the city of Longueuil.

Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.

STM shuttle

Three STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions:

  • 767 (summer season only)
  • 768 (summer season only)
  • 777 (every day of the year)
    • Jean-Drapeau Subway Station
    • Casino de Montréal
    • Since June 19, 2023, the 777 bus line is extended to downtown Montreal.

The Parc is one of the few places where you can cross the Saint Lawrence River on your bike: simply take the bike paths of the Jacques Cartier Bridge, the Concorde Bridge or the Bike link.


People can enjoy many of the cycling paths to get to or pass through the Parc Jean-Drapeau, either running or walking.

With more than 25 kilometres of trails and pathways, the Parc is a pleasant spot for hiking, all year round.


Motorists can get to Parc Jean-Drapeau by taking the Jacques Cartier Bridge or the Concorde Bridge.

Nearby parking areas: P9, P10, P11
