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.

Must see for any tourist in Montreal. There is an awesome museum inside and the view from the top of the tower is simply unbelievable. The events there are always amazing and you are guaranteed to have a fun time.

Undergoing some restoration; it would be a pity if the city does finally decide to demolish it. There are shady areas from the September sun. easy access by Metro or bus. This is worth a visit. How did they ever think they would he able to raise the roof on those cables??

We went here after spending a long hot day at the Botanical Gardens. There were many steps to go down in order to get to the entrance (although it would have been easier if we had been approaching from the Metro). The ride in the funicular was interesting and the views were very good - but when you got to... More

Lots of construction going on in the area. Parking expensive so we decided just to drive around and see what we see.

We found certain parts of the park quite interesting. In the grounds they have Olympic flags of winning nations and also plaques of winners in the Olympic events. We found the ride to the top of the Olympic park a little overpriced but considering we were only in Montreal once for a visit we felt we had to do it.... More

A visit to the 165m tower, inclined at a 45 deg angle is a must. There is a funicular going up on the outside and it was great going up – having such an overview of the Olympic Park and the Botanical Gardens next door. From the top of the tower we had panoramic view over Montreal’s environment. The trip... More

Great day out with stadium tour and visit to viewing platform for terrific views of Montreal took metro out to stadium ($6 return ticket) though a bit confusing coming out of station due to work going on at stadium. Lots more to do than we had time for, but definitely worthwhile

Visiting this place certainly demonstrates the expense, complexity and difficulty of putting on an Olympics. One also sees how difficult it is for host countries to maintain these facilities after the Olympics.

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.
