     History
    Used to be 2 wild islands, one called Île Ronde and one named Île Ste-Hélène, then enlarged by the earth dug up by the metro. Île Notre-Dame was also created. The fort is there since 1820 and was built by the british to serve Ville-Marie (Montréal.)The island now homes La Ronde amusement park, the Biosphere, the Montreal Casino, the Gilles-Villeneuve F1 Circuit and more...
    Île Ste-Hélène is named after the Montreal-founder Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve' s wife, Hélène for he thought the place was so beautiful, it was as beautiful as his wife.

     Future Plans
    Casino (set in the old France and Quebec Pavillions) might moved in the future years. No plans for the impressive France Pavillion if the Casino moves...
