Parc Jean Drapeau has begun to announce opening details for their 2018 spring and summer season.

Part of their announcements included the opening of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, located on Notre-Dame Island at Parc Jean-Drapeau. The circuit is a 4,361-metre race track and has played host to the Canada Grand Prix since 1978.

The race track is renowned for its high-quality surface, which undergoes heavy maintenance to handle extreme wear and tear during is annual competitions.

When the track isn’t being used for competition, the circuit becomes a fantastic facility for visitors to bike, para-cycle, rollerblade, run, or walk, both competitively and recreationally. The track is also surrounded by greenery, public artwork, and a fantastic view of Montreal, making it a prime destination for physical activity.

The track is typically open from 6 am to 10 pm; some days will have shorter hours for maintenance and other events. More information can be found on Parc Jean-Drapeau’s website.
