Place Émilie-Gamelin, at the corner of Berri and Sainte-Catherine streets, is the place to refresh yourself this summer. First you have to try the ice cream made in Quebec at the Comptoir, a shipping container recycled into an ice-cream kiosk by the team of Steel Space and managed by Resto Plateau. It’s open Sunday to thursday, from 11:30 AM to 9900 PM and Friday to Saturday, from 11:30 AM to 9:30 PM.
Ice cream in hand, you can enjoy the all-new painted. More adventurous types can wrinkle their brows every day between 12 noon and 7 PM with giant chess and tangram games directly on the pool.
The ONF, the Cinémathèque and Les Grands Explorateurs will help choose films and documentaries from the cinematic work of the greatest Canadian directors. It’s a car-free drive-in, and a must-see for movie lovers. Detailled schedule in French is available here.
Not to mention a series of cultural events like pétanque, movies in the park, youth literature activities, slam-poetry performances, the Faubourg Saint-Laurent public market every Friday, new photo exhibition mounted by Mouvement Art Public (MAP) or the artistic performances of the robot Jackson Bollock.
