We drove it on a Toyota Minivan at 30 kmph. The race had just taken place 3 weeks before so part of the stands were still there. The kids just laughed at me making the noise of the F1`s and shouting it in the car.

I really love this track. Be prepared to do a lot of walking, and ladies make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Our backpacks are usually filled with beer and sunscreen lol, but that's really all you need. The track has a ton of food options,...More

Be prepared to walk... and walk. We went for the F1 race, and it was a very long walk around the track. Go early, stay late, be patient and enjoy the experience. If you attend an event with lots of people and you are in...More

This circuit is 4.5km in length and is setup as a biking course for most of the summer. The course is rather flat with small ups and downs. It is a rather fast course and you can count on going 3-5km/h faster than road biking.

Beautifully situated. Just make sure to arrive earlier as there is a bottleneck at security on bridges during the GP.

Attended the 2018 F1 race, quite a spectacle in itself, great event. Food was expensive but not unlike any other major event.

Fantastic classic motor-racing circuit with great overtaking opprtunities for the high speed cars. Easy to get to via the Metro and easy to get around once there. "Beach" area inside the circuit is very pleasant. Grandstand bench-seats are very uncomfortable, a real killer for longer...More

One of the older “classic” F1 tracks which the drivers seem to like a lot. Good viewing areas, particularly at the hairpin, but the track is not as fan friendly as some of the newer facilities. There are limited areas for the food vendors and...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,

There is no reserved parking for spectators at the track. It is possible to reserve a parking space near a metro station or the Old Port of Montreal water shuttle.
