Étienne Desmarteau


Situated in the Rosemont neighborhood of Montreal, a park and track are named in honor of 1904 Olympic 56 pound weight throw Olympic gold medalist, Étienne Desmarteau. The park features an open, public accessible eight-lane 400-meter track that's the perfect spot for a serious workout or some relaxed circuits.

The track is popular with a number of local Montreal running clubs and serves as their track training hub.

While we don't recommend any accomodations near Étienne-Desmarteau, a trip on the the #18 bus from the Metro Orange line Beaubien takes 15 minutes.
