Parc Kent


The site of the official 1976 Olympic track and field test event, Parc Kent features an eight-lane all-weather track. Located in the Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighborhood, the track can be a little busy with soccer games and practice taking place on the infield.

If you want to avoid the congestion an early morning or wet weather workout is usually best. But if you don’t mind dodging a few soccer balls, the track is open and accessible to the public.

Parc Kent is located near the Université de Montréal and HEC campuses. The Metro Blue line - Université de Montréal stop is only a 5 minute jog from the track.
