Just minutes from downtown, guests can enjoy lounging and swimming at a seasonal beach, or the aquatic complex, as well as train for rowing in the Olympic Basin. Guests looking to explore and hike can find the Flower Show Gardens, take in a number of public art installations, walk through the Stewart Museum or explore the Biosphere Environmental Museum.

Thrill-seekers can take in over 40 rides and attractions at the LaRonde Six Flags Amusement Park, or place a wager at the Casino de Montreal.

A number of public events occur throughout the park, including the annual Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, which is the only road on the Île Notre-Dame.

Getting Around
There are two methods of entry to the park, via the Jacques-Cartier Bridge as well as the de la Concorde Bridge, both of which are clearly labelled with signs directing you to your destination.

With the sheer number of attractions available at the park, visitors may want to orient themselves prior to visiting. A map is available on their website (French only).

The park is easily accessibly by public transit, with the Jean-Drapeau Metro Station on the yellow line situated in the centre of St. Helen's Island, and seasonal routes operated by Société de transport de Montréal heading to LaRonde (#769) and the Beach (#767). A year-round route (#777) travels to the casino. 

A single-ride adult fare is $3, but visitors to Montreal can purchase unlimited-use one-day fares, as well as unlimited-use weekend or three-day passes. More fare and route information can be found on the STM website.

Alternatively, a river shuttle is available leaving from the Jacques-Cartier Pier in Montreal's Old Port, operated by Maritime Shuttles. Passengers are allowed to bring on bicycles, because they will have access to a number of cycling trails throughout the park. Fares are $7.50 one way, and the shuttle travels from Montreal to Lonqueuil with a stop at St. Helen's Island. More information and schedules can be found on their website.

From the park, downtown Montreal is a 9-minute drive, or 20-minute transit ride, while Longueuil is an 8-minute drive, or 24-minute transit ride. The Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) is an approximate 1-hour drive away.
