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 attend an event in the Stadium, to exercise at the Sports Centre or to take part in an outdoor event at the Esplanade Financiere Sun Life, there is something for everyone. The Olympic Park grounds and its thirteen on-site partners are visited by more than four million people every year. Open to the world and in harmony with the neighbouring community of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, the Olympic Park has become a unique recreational and tourist attraction where creation, discovery, entertainment, and sport coexist side-by-side. New for the summer 2016 The Souvenirs of 1976 exhibit will take you back in time to (re)live the Montreal Olympic adventure-from the project's tentative beginnings to today, when the flame still burns.

We visited this train by metro and it was quite a walk from the station especially with little kids. Although the whole walk turned interesting due to the Montreal Olympics storyboard you see and read alongside. We took a ride to the tower, visited the ever crowded biodome and the cafeteria really had some great food to offer. You could... More

Didn't get to go inside but just walking around on the grounds that held the Olympics is a nice thing to do. The history and the countries flags still flying around the grounds. I wouldn't spend a lot of time there but it was right across the street from the parking area of the Botanical Gardens and was well worth... More

We're big Washington Nationals fans, so this automatically landed on our list when we visited Montreal. I enjoyed walking around the grounds and talking with my husband about Jonah Keri's Up, Up, and Away (an exhaustive history of the Expos). However, if you don't have a reason like this, the visit probably isn't worth your time. It's pretty expensive and... More

Well. Parc Olympique is beautiful to behold from Mont Royal. Close up and you see what paying to much for something beautifully designed but badly executed gets you. I think it is a very great memory of the olympics for me and the potential for dreaming great dreams and the danger that graft can have on those dreams.

After visiting the Biodome, we wandered over to the Stadium for the Tour of Montréal, where you can ride a funicular (think of an elevator and tram combined) to the top of the tower for some incredible 360-degree views of the city.

We came Jan and there wasn't much to see since the stadium was closed the hockey arena was closed and the memorabilia was closed. It was a really foggy day so the tower wasn't worth while doing. Neat to see the venue of where it occurred but not much for us to work with.

We spent the better part of the day checking out the Olympic Park. It was a nice visit, but a little cold as we spent a good deal of time walking from one locale to another. The biodome and tower were great to check out though.

As one of Montreal's iconic spots, this is a must for all travellers to this city. The Olympic rings area was a bit of a walk from the building but it was well worth it.

If you happen to be visiting the Biodome or Planetarium, it doesn't hurt to check out the stadium. However, I wouldn't make it the sole reason for a visit. Up close, the stadium is definitely falling apart. We saw sheets of plywood nailed down in places that had opened up, and cement spread over cracks that hadn't been painted over.... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
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.
