Urban sugar shack

Things to do at the Parc Restaurants

Every year, the beginning of spring heralds sugaring-off time. To mark the occasion, the Ste-Hélène Bistro-Terrasse restaurant will be turned into an urban sugar shack to offer a traditional culinary experience to aficionados of maple-syrup products, or people seeking discovery of new tastes and flavours.

It's an ideal opportunity to get together with family and friends to share Mother Nature's sweet-and-salty delicacies. The musical ambiance and festive setting carefully put together by the Gestion GSP team further enhance the meal.

While you're there, take advantage of the opportunity to set out on an adventure on Parc Jean-Drapeau's hiking paths, on the shores of downtown Montréal, as well as on Mont Boullé to observe the biodiversity as the birds sing their melodious tunes.
