Citizens and visitors who set out to discover the wonders of Parc Jean-Drapeau have an opportunity to admire the public art works that enliven the landscape of this outstanding urban park. Accessible to everyone and nicely spread throughout every area of the Parc's grounds, you'll see an array of works, including ones at Espace 67, along the paths of the Floralies Gardens, at the Aquatic Complex and in the area surrounding the Biosphere.
These superb creations, which highlight the talent of local and international artists, belong to the City of Montréal's public art collection and are a part of the cultural heritage. They are reflective of Montréal's window on the world, since many of the works are donations by countries which participated in the world's fair, Expo 67, while others are from cultural exchanges between cities.
It's an artistic panorama you can experience all year round, as the works brighten the premises and blend in perfectly with the Parc's environment and natural setting.
Please consult the public art works' pages for detailed schedules because some creations are not accessible at certain times due to events or works.
Here are a few photos of the artworks, just to give you an overview.
