Owner description: 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 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.

After most of a day visiting the Olympic Site, I came away slightly confused and a little disappointed - and questioning my morals. We caught the Metro and walked to the entrance not really knowing what to expect. You then have a decision to make to purchase the correct ticket. Botanical Gardens?, Biodome?, Tower? - help!!.... Pleasant staff gave us... More

We took a recommendation from our waitress to visit Montreal's Olympic site from 1976..and it was fab. The highlight is the trip via funicular up the leaning tower to the observation deck. Fab views all across Montreal that gave perspective of the city. Some histories of the 76 heroes and a small gift shop that's not really offering to full... More

The Observation tower at the Olympic park was well worth what we paid. We paid 1/2 price using our AAA discount. This was a much better deal than the combo ticket deals offered with the purchase of a Biodome ticket. The views were excellent from above. There was even a guide in the observation deck who answered questions. Be sure... More
