The views from the tower are the greatest ones you will find of Montreal. The ride on the tram was great. I am not comfortable with heights and trams but this one was not too bad.

Not sure it's worth paying entrance fees to any of the venues but definitely walm around and take pictures of the tower, the stadium, and the olympic rings. Find the rings ans the cauldron and that will be the best spot for "olympic" pictures

The tower was a nice ride up and it had very nice views of the surrounding areas. It was a neat experience overall to go up and view the entire Olympic Park. We didn't do the minor attractions though, just visited the Biodome beforehand.

Not only the stadium, but the whole complex is a must to know. With 4 major attractions (tower, biodome, planetarium, botanical garden), this place has a lot of history and information to discover.

The Olympic tower rises above Montreal and as we both remembered this Olympics from childhood we decided to visit. The park has a lot of construction going on (August 2014) and is a way out of the centre of the city ..... We caught the metro which was a good experience anyway. The only thing really to see was the... More

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.
