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.

In October my sister, mother and I visited Montreal. One of the touristy things we did was take a tour of the Olympic park, home of the 1976 Summer games. It was well worth the price, the tour guide was informative and told us a lot of the history of the buildings, the troubles, and about the games themselves. I... More

Many reviewers had nailed it already; neglected, disrepair etc. It's a barren area with no vibrancy, people or real attractions. My motivation was the stadium, I remember watching the Olympics as a 10 yo in Australia and wanted to come one day. Today was that day but it very underwhelming. Lucky I've got my memories to hang onto. The parc... More

A day visiting the Olympic stadium means that you might also choose from a plethora of other atractions within walking distance from the stadium. The Botanical Garden, the planetarium, the Insectarium and the Biodôme are all worth your time. Along with the stadium there is something for everyone here. The Stadium is best viewed at night i find. It makes... More

We did this side trip to the observatory tower on top of the Olympic Stadium as part of our Biodome ticket package. You ride up a funicular to get there and have some nice views of the '76 Olympic village during the ride. The top of the tower is all enclosed, which was a tad disappointing, but your views all...

Visited Olympic Park and took the funicular to the top of Montreal Tower. It was a sunny day and one gets a very good view of the stadium and Montreal. The leaning structure makes it a good photo backdrop. We also went to the Biodome since it was part of the package. If you don't have young children, it may... More

We bought the tower + 1 package choosing to see the Biodome along with the tower. A simple premise, ride up to the top of the tallest leaning structure in the word, that also serves as a main structural support to the Olympic Stadium roof. Great view of Montréal, interactive screens and pleasant experience. If you are going to the... More

The place looks neglected and for sure can use some care.i do not see anything changed from the first time I visited in 1989. Going up to the tower is a tired old exercise as it is not really high but since it's on an angle u might want to. No attractions are worth seeing inside. Skip going in and... More

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.
