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 purchased a combo ticket to the Botanical Gardens and Olympic Park. That was a mistake. If you are young and don't have small children, you'll be in better shape for the combo, otherwise, choose one or the other. THERE IS NO EASY-ACCESS PARKING. Best bet is parking across the street at the Botanical Gardens ($12Can/24 hrs). THERE IS VERY... More

It is a not inconsiderable walk from the nearest metro so bear this in mind - took about 10 mins at small child pace, but once you get there it's fun, great to see an Olympic venue still being used.

The Olympic park is a cool area to spend the day. There is a lot to do in the area. The tower, botanical gardens, biodome, and stadium tour can take up a whole day for a family!

The tower is amazing! Worth taking the cable car style ride to the top. Great view and in the same location as several other attractions such as the biodome, planetarium, and insectetarium.

There are several attractions that are well worth the visit such as: Biodome, Insectarium, Planetarium, and Botanical Gardens not to mention the Montréal Tower Observatory. I would suggest purchasing a bundle package for all of the sights. The Insectarium, I personally thought was the most unique of the the group and found it ant exhibit particularly fascinating!

The Montreal Olympic Park is historic and interesting. There is plenty to do and it is worth a morning or an afternoon visit if you have a lot of time here. If you're only here for a short stay, you may want to skip it and save it for a longer visit.

Such a nice architecture. From the glass top top, you can see the different fields. Not well-maintained though

It was 1976, a long time ago, still if you want people to visit, repair the walks, replace the dead plantings and paint some. There are 2 parking lots to visit the Olympic area, one across the street at the Montreal Gardens and the other is at the site. The first is in good shape, the second looks like it... More

This place is really neat. The funicular is a must. The ride up is exciting and give great views. Once at the top, you see the whole city. And everything is labeled which is cool.

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.
