This tower was built as the Ile Ronde Rear Range Light, but the range has been discontinued for many years and the front tower no longer remains. The surviving tower is often the target of vandals and clearly needs some care. It is on the grounds of the La Ronde amusement park managed by Six Flags. (Thanks to Michel Forand.)

Tower Height: 48

Description of Tower: White, square pyramidal concrete tower on a square concrete base; white wooden lantern.

This light is not operational

Take Jacques-Cartier Bridge between Montreal and the suburb of Longueil on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River. About halfway across the bridge, take the exit for Ile Sainte-Hélène. Follow directions for Fort Sainte-Hélène and drive past the entrance to the fort. The tower is located below the fort, near a large parking lot. (Thanks to Michel Forand.)
