Exhibition of pictures about Montreal




Jean Drapeau Park

Jean Drapeau Park (named since 2003) includes the Notre-Dame Island and St. Helene Island. Both islands were the scene of the universal exhibition in 1967. This park is formerly known as the Parc des îles and Terre Des Hommes.

The Notre-Dame Island was created from scratch with stones coming from the excavation of the Metro de Montreal and highway A-15 (Decarie). During the expo, it was strewn with numerous buildings from different countries participating in the exhibition; few remains.

St. Helene Island as it appears now is the union of two islands; St. Helene Island and Round Island (which explains the name of the amusement park), which was connected to the main island in the preparations of Expo 67. The island was named in honour of the wife of Samuel de Champlain. This land served as a military place in 19 th century before it was bought by the city of Montreal to became a public park.

Now Jean Drapeau Park remains a mecca of entertainment with institutions such as La Ronde, Stewart History Museum, The Biosphere, the Montreal Swimming center or the Montreal Casino. The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve also attracts its share of visitors with the annual Grand Prix F1 of Montreal during the month of June. The fireworks in the summers are another attraction that makes this place the most visited park in the city of Montreal.

The two islands are connected together by the Concorde Bridge while the Jacques Cartier Bridge connects the island to St. Helena to shores of the St. Lawrence River.
