Attraction details
Owner description: Located on Ile Notre-Dame, the 4.361 km-long Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve hosts the Grand Prix du Canada, as well as biking, in-line skating, jogging and walking enthusiasts! PARTIAL CLOSURE The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will be partially closed to cyclists, pedestrians and inline skates enthusiasts from May 15 to September 4, 2017 due to the mounting, the hosting and demounting of major events, to maintenance work done on the circuit in preparation for the Grand Prix du Canada, and to the STM bus circuit to Jean-Dore beach. This partial closure means two things: • The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will be accessible to cyclists, pedestrians and inline skates enthusiasts for only 43 non consecutive days this summer, from May 15 to September 4, 2017. Visite the Parc Jean-Drapeau website for the detailed schedule. • A portion of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the "Hairpin" area, will be inaccessible at all time time from May 15 to September 4, 2017.

“F1 or Cycling”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It is great to visit if you are an F1 fan as you can ride your bike or rollerblade on the circuit and imagine the cars speeding down to almost a halt into the Senna curve. Great view of the river.

“Bike riding or rollerblading paradise!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The pavement here is so smooth it's a wonderful place to go biking or rollerblading. There are some gardens to see in the Parc Jean-Drapeau and it's quite fun to be on a racetrack. It is possible to go from here all the way to the Lachine Canal which has a wonderful bike path by the watrefront.

“Give your ears a rest and watch it on T V”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Big deal! Get your eats blasted loose while you watch cars speed by in an intolerable blast of noise. You'll get a better view if you watch it on TV

You never know when is the next time you will have chance to go freely on a F1 track. It's great and you can even do it by bike!
