This park is my favourite place in montreal. It has everything from great views of the city, easy access by metro or car, lots of attractions, and best of all it's great for wildlife photography (I'll explain below) On my visit to Montreal I can here four times and out of the four times I saw a red fox 3 times. They are very easy to find and I did not have to go looking for them or walk very far from the metro to find them. They are very friendly and some will come up to you for food(do not feed or pet them just back away) and will stay still enough around you for you to take some amazing pictures.
We had such a great time at Parc Jean Drapeau. It's so easy to get there because it's next to the metro station. Literally by its side. Also everything is so organized. Food "court" had a little band playing for us while we ate and I was really impressed by how fun can it be a day in the park. High point was the hanger with all lost items. Genious and shows honesty of people.
