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.

We decided to break from galleries and churches and visit the Olympic Park. Although at 11.00am it was busy with groups, the whole place has a rather sad living in the past feel. The trip to the top of the tower is good, the views excellent but there is little else. As others have said, for what is offered, it... More

Convenient from downtown via metro. Arrived and found it difficult to figure out where we were supposed to go. The tour of the tower is nice, but a bit expensive. You will have a nice view of the city. I was disappointed in the whole area, was hoping to see more historical info about the olympics.

Great view from observatory, but dreary in the beginning of April! Did not visit any other part of the park. Overpriced tickets to observatory. Convenient to subway.

The Bio Dome was overrun with thousands, as it was a Saturday and the line was over two hours to get in. The park has other features but with -20 degrees, we had to just walk around and hit the gift shop.

We visited Olympic Park on the day we were leaving Montreal so we only had a few hours which is certainly not enough to visit all of the sights in the Park and appreciate everything there is to see. It is easily located just outside the subway exit and a full day trip which the kids and also the adults... More

We went to the top of the observatory which was kind of cool. You could see all of montreal from there. But there wasn't much else to see (for free anyway, since that was $22.50 just to go up to the top). There was ice skating if you brought your own skates and fun area for kids to play around...

The park in itself is more fun when there are activities, but even without them its cool to see. Personally to really appreciate the olympic park you have to go up the observation tour. Once up there you have amazing views over the entire city including Mont-Royal and downtown. You also have a free tour explaining what you see with... More

Although they have a great photo op with a podium, olympic rings and flame (which you can do for free) -- there's really nothing else to see Olympic wise and as a huge Olympics fan - I was slightly disappointed. I did check out the biome however and you can read my separate review on that.

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.
