MONTRÉAL, Oct. 3rd, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Autumn in all its splendid colours has descended on Parc Jean-Drapeau, to the great delight of families, sports enthusiasts and lovers of nature and the outdoors.
The Parc has a glittering array of activities during the fall season: romantic strolls along the Saint-Lawrence River, hiking on Mont Boullé, bike rides on the many cycling paths and trails, picnics, a public art circuit, visits to the Stewart Museum and the Biosphere, Environment Museum, and, especially, picture-taking of the unique area with its gorgeous views of downtown Montréal and the glorious autumn colours! And, for the more courageous, there's the Fright Fest at La Ronde, where terrifying monsters, zombies and vampires take over the amusement park.
You can also enjoy a snack or drink at Terrasse 67, on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., until Monday, October 13, when it closes for the season.
Just a few steps from downtown Montréal and the South Shore, Parc Jean-Drapeau is the prime place to escape from the daily grind, because of the ever-present fauna and flora, the many streams and lagoons, the Floralies gardens, Mont Boullé and more than 25 kilometres of cycling routes and hiking paths, including Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
