Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau Has A New Terrasse That Feels Like A 'Seaside Resort'

Fresh off its run along the Lachine Canal in the Sud-Ouest, Les Guinguettes has opened to the public in Parc Jean-Drapeau, the park society announced via press release.

Described as "a venue you might find at a seaside resort," Les Guinguettes "[invites] citizens to take back the banks of the Saint Lawrence River" in a "colourful setting" that "includes dining tables, temporary swings, ping-pong tables, stages for hosting outdoor shows and a luminous decor which creates a fabulous evening ambiance."
