“I’m really excited about inviting Montrealers and the general public to come, discover and enjoy the Parc Jean-Drapeau,” said Danièle Henkel, the Chair of the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau board of directors. “Whether you are with your family or friends, you’re sure to find activities and events that appeal to everyone. Recently, the Grand Prix du Canada and the PiknicÉlectronik events set the tone for a top-notch program of events that will continue all summer long.”
When it comes down to Parc Jean-Drapeau, there is no shortage of things to do: boating activities at the Jean-Doré Beach, cycling and in-line skating on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, cultural tours of the Stewart Museum and the Biosphère, Environment Museum, swimming at the Aquatic Complex, discovering public art works, the self-guided tour of Expo 67, Flyboarding, a new extreme sport in which a water-jet allows you to fly above the water; and there are kilometres of trails for people who just want to take a leisurely walk.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Jean-Doré Beach, the parc presents a new feature this year, Aquazilla!
