Montreal Real Estate Information - Ile Ste-Helene

St. Helen's Island in the St. Lawrence River was altered extensively to become the site of Expo '67, Montreal's very successful world's fair. In the 4 years before the Expo opened, construction crews reshaped the island and doubled its surface area with landfill, then went on to create beside it an island that hadn't existed before, Ile Notre-Dame. Much of the earth needed to do this was dredged up from the bottom of the St. Lawrence River, and 15 million tons of rock from the excavations for the Metro and the Decarie Expressway were carried in by truck. The city built bridges and 83 pavilions. When Expo closed, the city government preserved the site and a few of the exhibition buildings. Parts were used for the 1976 Olympics, and today the island is home to Montréal's popular casino and an amusement park, La Ronde, named for the round shaped where it was built.
