Owner description: 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.

Got the metro here. Not really well signposted to the cable car ride to the tower. It was very quiet and the footpaths are not extensive.

The price to go in the cable car to the top of the observation tower was as high as the tower itself. Its not worth the price in my opinion. Tourist pay it, because that what you do on vacation. But its at best a bit cheeky and doesn't reflect well on the people that operate it.

When you get to the top it a nice view, but thats all. Later in the day I went up Mont Royal park and the view of the city was outstanding. That is free, albeit a tough walk up!!

I wouldn't tell anyone not to visit somewhere, because its about personal opinion. I will say, I very much doubt I would go up again when in Montreal.

This is not an easy place to get to. The Pie IX subway line runs here but there is at least a 3/4 mile walk to circle around the station into the park. Once you are there it is fantastic! Pace yourself, and try to spend the entire day as there is so much to see and do. Just be aware that you will walk miles upon miles to get to the different venues as there is no infrastructure, or shuttles to get you from point A to point B. Also be prepared to spend a lot of money! The tickets are not cheap.

If you're in the area for the botanical garden or the biodome, this is worth a stop. However, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here. The view from the top of the tower is great, but it's very crowded and expensive to get up there.

The funicular was very, very cool.
The pool seems over priced for swimming and the kid-visiting hours are short. Only adults are allowed off the tower and the tower is closed while kids are allowed in. The parking lot is frequented by professional robbers. Don't leave any valuables in your car.

This is a good half day trip. Its worth taking a trip to see the stadium where the Olympics were held and to see the tower from the exterior. The Biodome is located here too - which is great for kids. I don't advise waiting in the long line to go to the top of Olympic Tower. It's short lived and not worth the time or money. Mount Royal is a better spot to see the view of the city and to take family photo's.
