Parc Jean-Drapeau's Île Sainte-Hélène is a favourite destination for the many visitors who come to enjoy the Aquatic Complex’s heated swimming pools and water games, the Biosphere’s environment museum, as well as the island heritage buildings including the Stewart Museum and De Lévis Tower.

It is also a popular place for music lovers, with its outdoor summer concerts and an ideal area for hosting major Parc events such as the Week-ends du Monde, La Fête des enfants de Montréal, and La fête des Neiges.
