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.

I read one of the reviews about parking. This was one of many trips to Montreal and I can't believe people drive. The Metro is great and the stop (http://www.stm.info/en/info/networks/metro - PIE-IX or VIAU) is right there. The pool has just been updated. Two years of renovations and that side of the stadium looks fantastic. The Observatory and Bio-dome are... More

My experience visiting was good - it was very interesting, and I enjoyed the ride to the top of the tower. I wished that there were photos of the grounds and buildings from while the olympics were going on back in 1976, and wished that the fountains were going (I still want to know if all of the roofs were...

Impressive grounds and architecture, reminicent of the 1976 olympics. Lots to see and do for the whole family, especialy on Fridays in the summer since they have food trucks and festivities.

Looking tired and jaded. Very poor signage and direction boards. Virtually all signs in French. They could do well to look at the Science Park in Valencia Spain, to see how to bring this area into the twenty first century.

We were staying downtown and were happy to find out that the Metro takes your right to Olympic Park. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon. We took the lift to the top of the tower. There are great views of the city from there. And the staff knows everything about everything. They were super informative. Afterwards we... More

We watched some Women's Fifa World Cup games here and had a very good time. The stadium is covered so you do not have to worry about the sun. The temperature inside was pleasant. Food prices are high.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighborhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighborhood 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.
