The Old Port of Montreal will launch its summer season on June 20th, as everything has been put in place to ensure the safety of visitors. 

This weekend marks the gradual return of many popular recreational activities and a smorgasbord of delicious food.

Come June 20th, the Old Port of Montreal will have plenty to offer visitors, including a variety of recreational activities, a selection of onsite restaurant and food services, and even the gradual resumption of water-related activities.

Eat, drink, & play

Some of the available recreational activities include:

  • The MTL Urban Zipline and Quick Jump
  • Voiles en Voiles, family theme park
  • Quadricycle and pedalo rentals at Écorécréo
  • Several summer shops
  • Bota Bota spa-sur-l'eau (partial opening)
  • Water-related activities
  • Clock Tower Beach (starting July 3)

Many food trucks are also open, as are some restaurants, like Marché des Éclusiers, Terraces Bonsecours, La Scena, and Café Van Houtte.

Other popular attractions, like The Montréal Observation Wheel, are getting ready to welcome visitors as soon as ministerial orders allow it.

In accordance with orders issued by the government in recent months, all events have been canceled until August 31st, including the Canada Day celebrations, which will not take place this year. Cirque du Soleil has postponed the world premiere of Under the Same Sky until spring 2021.

The team at the Science Centre, the number one activity in the Old Port, is working on a reopening plan for this summer. The official reopening date will be posted to The Old Port of Montreal's Facebook page.
