Beach Volleyball

Things to do at the Parc Jean-Doré Beach

For users of Jean-Doré Beach, Parc Jean-Drapeau has eight beach volleyball courts available; the facilities boast an outstanding sandy surface and meet the highest international standards.

The sand is cleaned daily, at the same time as that of the Jean-Doré Beach, and the volleyball nets are always kept nicely taut. The courts, aligned in a north-south direction, are located between Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve and a line of trees which provide a bit of shade at the end of the day.

Whether it's for 2-on-2 or 4-on-4 matches, come and work out and have some fun in the sun: What could be better than a friendly volleyball match and taking a dip in the water to freshen up between games!

  • Please note there is no rental of volleyballs on the site.
