Walk from Cité du Havre to Ile Notre-Dame

Starting from the Bassins Peel, I walked in the Cité du Havre neighbourhood, passing by the brutalist Habitat 67, until I reached the Parc de la Cité du Havre (recently renamed Parc de Dieppe), at the tip of the peninsula. There was a great view on the Old Port, Pont Jacques Cartier and Parc Jean Drapeau from the park. I then crossed the Saint-Lawrence river on Pont de la Concorde until Ile Notre-Dame. At that point, it was getting dark so I walked to Ile Saint-Hélène and Parc Jean Drapeau to take the subway back to the city. I stopped at the Biosphère on the way.
