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. New for the summer 2016 The Souvenirs of 1976 exhibit will take you back in time to (re)live the Montreal Olympic adventure-from the project's tentative beginnings to today, when the flame still burns.

Looks like an abandoned Olympic venue. Signage was not very good to get to the funicular. Once we found it, the wait was long and it was hot! Bring a water bottle with you just in case.

We are sports enthusiasts so this was up are ally. We did the elevator to the top and that was very fascinating. We loved the tour of the old coliseum and learning how it was built with no structural beams, very neat!

We went to see the park and the gardens. It was a bit disappointing. It's a huge complex and not clearly marked as to where to go to see things. If you're a fan of previous Olympic venues you might find it interesting.

If you're old enough to remember the Montreal Olympics, this will bring back memories. And if you're not, it may inspire dreams. We took the tour of the facility, and found the guide's discussion and explanations of what we were looking at and how the facility had been changed over the years were very interesting. The city of Montreal has... More

We were just going to have a look at the Olympic park, when my daughter noticed the elevator going up and down the Tower. Some quick internet research revealed that it's the tallest inclined tower in the world and the only funicular in the world that goes up a curve. Sold! We paid a family rate of about $60 CA,...

The expo is interesting and the tour was great. The guide was nice and giving many details about the olympics as well as other great moment of the last fourthy years of the stadium. The funicular ride to the observatory on top of the tour is fast and the view of Montreal is amasing. Definitivelly worth the $

Spent hours in the park. We paid for the triple ticket which included the tower, the museum and the guided tour of the stadium. The tower was very impressive with a lovely view of the city. The guided tour was brilliant the guide was really good and his funny comments kept us interested all the way. The museum was a... More

We were across the street at botanical gardens and had no idea this was here. Kids thought it was fun to go in and look around. Did not spend as much time as we wanted, it started to rain, but if you like the Olympics and are in the area, do stop

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.
