Montreal/Parc Jean-Drapeau

Parc Jean-Drapeau is in Montreal.

Get in

By metro

The Yellow Line runs from Berri-UQAM in Downtown to metro Jean-Drapeau, on Ile Notre Dame, just next to the Biosphere.

By ferry

Seasonal ferries run from the Old Port.

By bus

The 169 runs from Papineau metro.

By car

Access the island from pont Jacques-Cartier at the north end of Île Sainte-Helen or pass by Habitat 67 and use Pont Condorde to the south. Parking is limited and expensive, running $10-15 flat rate depending on the season and events. Note that car access to and around the islands is cut off during Formula One races (obviously, since the road around Ile Notre Dame doubles as the race track) and other events.

Get around

By foot

There are a number of footpaths throughout the park, on both islands.

By bus

Number 167 buses run from the main terminal a few meters from the metro station to La Ronde amusement park, the casino, and beach.
