A daring architectural site, the Olympic Park was built to accommodate the 1976 Summer Olympics and has since been host to more than one hundred million visitors. Whether to admire Montreal from atop the highest inclined tower in the world, to...more

We enjoyed a tour of the Montreal Olympic facility, our guide Jeff did an excellent job - we learned a number of new facts we weren't aware of. The highlight for us was a walk through the aquatic center where divers were practicing and the...More
We went intending only to ride up the tower but there was a tour starting of the Parc Olympique so we decided to join in. We are glad we did as it added so much to our visit. Quick history of the 1976 Olympics and...More
Decided to not go on the tour, and just walk around. Outside there's the timeline of the Park and the buildings, from construction to music concerts to sports events after the Olympics. Inside there's the swimming pool - if you're a keen swimmer bring your...More
If you’re a swimmer, bring a suit and towel and swim in the Olympic pool for C$7. This is one of the best values in the city. Locker rooms have secure locking lockers and saunas as well. A very good value.
As a fan of the olympics I got the metro out from downtown to look at the stadium. It was very bleak and nothing really happening there. We didn’t go on the funiculare or on a tour so it may improve your visit if you...More
Having previously attended events here it was fun to walk around and briefly walk inside the stadium. There are tours you can pay to go on but we choice not to do that. Within walking distance is the soccer stadium for their MSL team. The...More
If you're a fan of the Olympics, stop by here. If only to feel like you were on the grounds were some Olympic history was made. It's definitely an overwhelming feeling to see the Olympic Rings and country flags displayed.
Other than that, the buildings...More
Olympique Parc is a destination in Montreal, although it's large and rangey and their are terrible directions and orientation. Much of it is in ill repair, but the ride on and the view atop the Funiculaire is really worth it. You can see the entire...More
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical
Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.

You can walk around Olympic Park for free, but there is a charge to get into certain attractions (Botanical gardens, Olympic Stadium, and the observation tower. We didn't do the stadium tour at the advice of a local, but the Gardens and observation tower are worth the money. Make sure you have several hours for the Gardens and about an hour for the tower.
