Take part in the 2nd BIXI Sunday offered by Manulife, it's free!

Take a BIXI for one-way trips of 30 minutes each or less to ride the city on this Quebec National Day. 

We are lucky, Montreal is full of beautiful parks and green spaces. On June 24, put your picnic in your BIXI basket and roll to the park!

Here are our 5 suggestions where to enjoy life:

  1. Maisonneuve Park in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie: adjacent to the Botanical Garden, it offers a great cycling circuit and a beautiful view of the Olympic Stadium.
  2. St-Viateur Park in Outremont: a lovely park for a stroll on the edge of the pond.
  3. The Honorable George O'Reilly Park in Verdun: impossible to be indifferent to the landscape that the banks of the St. Lawrence River offers.
  4. Baldwin Park in the Plateau-Mont-Royal: lounging under the trees, the perfect place for a break away from the sun!
  5. Jarry Park in Villeray-St-Michel - Parc-Extension: Close to the Little Italy district, it is THE green space to enjoy a pizza or gelato on the go!

Continue your Sunday with festivities celebrating Quebec organized throughout the city. Check out the official program to not miss a thing!

// INSTRUCTIONS // 

  1. Go to any one of the 540 BIXI stations between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm. [ Download the BIXI app or visit the station map to find a station near you.]
