This is really a nice park set just by the Geneva Lake and free to explore despite it belongs to the Olympic museum.
We took a walk from downtown's Ouchy port which took us less than half an hour on a beautiful sunny March afternoon.
Park is full of interesting sculptures depicting various Olympic sports.

Loved all the sculptures outside the Musee. A must when walking around Lac Lemand! The museum as a great surprise to us. We weren't even aware that the Olympic Committee is housed here at the Musee.

This is a wonderful park, with wonderful statues. Paavo Nurmi, Emile Zatopek and other legends. You will find interesting facts and you van run 100meter. And the museum is also nice.

We were late to reach the Olympic Park and the museum had closed by then, definitely a missed opportunity but the good thing is that the park does not have any opening and closing timing. You can enjoy the part at your leisure and it is very well curated, giving a glimpse of what the museum will be offering and will leave you asking for more and perhaps come back to visit museum. It is quite interactive, you can see how high is the Olympic record for high Jump and see where you stand next to it. How fast is bolt for 100 mt and can try running your course and some more. The steps leading to museum are well used providing information on host of each olympic with year. Worth a visit.

We visited the park with the kids!
It’s a beautiful walk. Very close to the metro station.

There are many options for kids to play around including a park and a merry go around.

The views are absolutely stunning.
On a good day you can see the mountains clearly, truly breathtaking.

There are many ferries coming in and out and lots of birds the children love watching and feeding.

This is a very pleasant park area which we walked through from the rear of the Olympic Museum building. There are Olympic themed statues and sculptures which make it pleasant to stroll.

A lot of sports represented in the gardens as you enter the Museum. The joy of sport in a beautiful setting with great views. A wonderful addition to the entrance

Lots of interesting statues / sculptures reflecting Olympic sports. Easy to get to by Metro. No need to pay for exhibition unless you're interested in sport.

Take a relaxing stroll along the lake with France and the Alps in a great distance... Cherry blossoms among hundreds of flowers lay around the Olympic museum

3 floors to visit, the lowest floor is pretty quick to cover and is pretty boring. The upper floors covers a lot of the original Greek history, then moves on to the gentleman who resurrected the Olympique movement circa 1890. Tons of Olympic memorabilia that is so neat to see. Everything from a Swiss bobsled from the 1920's to the actual (flaming) arrow that lit the cauldron in Barcelona in 1992. We spent 2 hours and could have spent more if we listened to all of the audio segments with the headphones. It was an extra CHF 5 to get and not worth it for us, we really didn't use it. If you had lots more time and wanted to listen to all of the audio info then worth it. The gift shop was a disappointment, I was looking for shirts that had the Olympic Museum logo/crest but there was next to nothing available. Most of the shirts looked like something you'd buy in any clothing store, generic looking.
