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.

Visiting Montreal with a party of six (two teens) and the consensus was that the Olympic Park was the best thing we did in Montreal. Loved the basilicas but I was outvoted! There are a lot of things to see here & the guided tour was very well done.

Bought tickets for the biodome and botanical gardens then added on the Montreal tower. So so so worth it!! Biodome was amazing, way better than the zoo. The tower was so worth the money as well. It was so hot out that by the time we were ready to go see the botanical gardens, we had to go home or... More

Great photo opportunities for groups or individuals at the Olympic circles. Outer park area is open to the public. It is a definite go-to spot in Montreal.

As a true olympic fan, this is an amazing and interesting place to visit. My daughter and I spent four hours doing the tour, tower and 1976 exibition. It was lovely to recount stories of my memories of the Montreal Olympics to my daughter. Quite overwelming to see the pool and stadium. Tour guide friendly and informative. After tour, went... More

Initially I was not interested to visit this place. But somehow I visited the tower and it was worth spending time. The tower has been enlisted with the Guinness World Record. The view of the city of Montreal from the Tower is marvellous. The tower has a unique trolley /lift for going up .

I'd visited here once before many years ago but returned as this year is the 40th anniversary of the (infamous) Montreal Olympics and this building was at the core of their financial problems. The package that included not only the trip to the top of the tower but also access into the pool and stadium itself was definitely worth it... More

The spectacular 45 degree leaning tower offers great views of the city and beyond. The indoor zoo is among the best of its kind in North America. The planetarium has great shows in French and English. The Olympic pool and fitness training areas are still state of the art. The Olympic Park and its myriad attractions are a must see... More

We stayed in the Hotel Universel kitty-corner to the east end of the complex. Very interesting designs, area was clean, but basically deserted of crowds and little signage of what was what or up coming events, I would imagine inside, attending an event would be a good experience. Did not visit the Biosphere or Planetarium or anything. Wouldn't hesitate if... More

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.
