The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau (SPJD) announces the reopening of Île Notre-Dame on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Closed since April 5 due to the pandemic and the measures implemented by health authorities, Île Notre-Dame receives an average of nearly 125,000 cyclists each year. This means that the Sainte-Catherine / Estacade / Jean-Drapeau bike link section, which is an integral part of the Trans Canada Trail and the Route verte, will be fully accessible to cyclists as will the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. Users must, however, always respect the physical distance measure of 2 meters, as recommended by the public health department.
Victoria Bridge Cycling Path to Saint-Lambert
To follow-up on last week’s announcement, the Victoria bridge cycling path to Saint-Lambert remains closed for security reasons due to upcoming construction work. Cyclists from Saint-Lambert who wish to cross to Montreal must take the multifunctional trails of the Jacques-Cartier and Samuel-de-Champlain bridges.
The SPJD would like to remind all Parc users to refer to the notices published on its website, in order to plan their trips properly and follow the alternative access options suggested. The 2020 provisional calendar for the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, as well as all notices related to access to the Parc are available at parcjeandrapeau.com
