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 Being that the Olympics were held there back in 1976, everything was outdated and old-looking.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

We visited here in the winter, it cost about $15 to park and made the mistake of taking the Chevy Tahoe into the parking garage, which the garage celings were very low, scratched the top of the car a bit, ooops. Not alot of the areas within the park were open, there was a lot of construction going on, but... More

We took a tour of the area without entering any specific bldgs. This area was obviously nice at one time but is now in need of some loving attention. It was run down but still nice to know the history and see what they had done. A good view of the city and the river where a lot of commerce... More

The Olympic Park was a great location to visit on our trip to Montreal. The grounds are quiet, but very interesting to walk knowing they were where the Olympics were held. The structure, stadium, and courts were a great reminder of the history of the location, and were conveniently located next to the Botanical Gardens.

The Olympic park looked its age the day we went with a mix of old concrete paths and reconstruction. We went up the tower from which we had a great view of Montreal with information panels. Probably not really worth $22.

Great perspective of the city from the tram ride up. Worth of a trip out to see. Easy to find from the subway. It was great exploring the ground, Olympic village and surrounding areas.
