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.

For $45 I went up the tower, had a tour of the Olympic swimming facility and "Big O", and admission to the Biodome. Made for an enjoyable afternoon. Very easy to get to by Metro.

We really enjoyed the trip up the funicular to see all the sights of Montreal. The biodome was a really excellent place not only for us adults but also and perhaps especially for children. The most disappointing is the stadium itself which is now looking very tired but it is nearly 40 years old. Not too much to see but... More

All I could think about was how nice this place must have been at one time. It has definitely seen better days, and the surrounding neighborhood is pretty sketchy. I'm glad I got to go, however, and would still recommend it to anyone who plans to visit.

Well kept through the years. The view of the city on top of the tower is amazing. It brings memories from the 1976 olympics. Easy access through the metro.

I would have loved to be able to take a tour or go to the top, but we were out of time. However, we were there and got to look at it from the outside. It is just huge and majestic. They were about to hold a skateboarding competition when we were there, so it was really nice to see... More

We just walked around because there was a huge line to see the biosphere or go up the tower. It is nice to walk around but here too it need some renewing! It is very old and not very nice. Only the planetarium is new and nice. But for us a little bit strange to see a planetarium at the... More

Interesting but interior is closed to the public. About 20-25 minutes from downtown via the subway system (which is very easy to use and efficient). Worth seeing if you have the time, and right next to the Biodome.

I didn't do the funicular. We roamed around and went to the biodome. the biodome was nice. Relaxing. great way to waste about 2 hours. The grounds of the parc are wide open. there was so much space with so many opportunities to do things there. (we thought they should put a mini golf course there) We really just enjoyed... More

Besides seeing the World Cup at the stadium, the funicular to the top of the tower to see the views of the area was the best thing about Olypmpic Park, not much else to say about it. But easy to get to and fun for half a day if you are staying in downtown area.

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.
