Parc Jean Drapeau

Parc Jean Drapeau is a large park in Montreal located on Ile Saint-Hélène and Ile Notre-Dame, in the Saint-Lawrence river. It is named after Jean Drapeau, who served as mayor of Montreal for many years. The islands were the site of Expo 67 and the best-known and most visible feature of the park, the Montreal Biosphere, is a remnant of that event: It was the pavilion of the United States during the Expo.
