The tower of the Olympic park has a nice funicular of an enjoyable ride, but the best feature is the view at the top. You can see the St Laurence river flowing through Montreal and the mountain of Mont Royal towering the city skyline. Also other mountains to the south can be seen afar. Compared to the rest of the...

Get up there, good views, totally worth it. Cool ride up in the funicular elevator thing too. No idea if there was anything else to see, the view was all I wanted.

The park was under construction when we were there and there was little available to see. We went inside the stadium and thought about going up in the tower, but decided it really wasn't worth the money. We really wanted to be able to see where the games were held, but with all the construction there really wasn't much to... More

This district is the home of the Olympic Stadium, Biodome, Saputo Stadium and many more. Lots of things to see and do here and it's just across the road from the famous huge botanic garden.

Nice free place to walk, walk your dog, or run, it is close from home, and free. Close to the movies, biodome, planetarium, stadium, etc.

It was under construction, but regardless, it was dirty. Garbage was everywhere, puddles with mud were everywhere. We visited Planetarium, which we loved and botanical garderns, that were great.

OK so the Montreal Olympics were a long time ago but the Olympic park and stadium remain interesting places to visit. There is plenty to see and the buildings remain interesting even after all this time.

Loved to see historic places, Olympics are my pasion and to see the site was amazing. We loved how they used the different areas as modern turistic areas

The stadium was mostly closed and seemed empty. There wasn't much activity there. The price to go up the tower was a little more than expected.

We visited and took the requisite pictures with the Olympic rings (no admission required), and then took the funicular (fancy word for elevator) to the observation deck. We spent about 3 hours total walking around the park and observation area. Being that the Olympics were held there back in 1976, everything was outdated and old-looking. Didn't appear that the city... More
