“World class facilities”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I have never been near an actual olympic stadium. We could even enter the swiming areas. For a person who admires engineering feats, this is a place to go. Aside from the big "owe" this is a place that was made with care.

“impressive white elephant we are still paying for”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Impressive to see, and view city skyline from the tower. As a stadium it sucks. Sound quality is awful in this cavernous space. The Montreal football team now plays at an expanded Molson stadium, and the Expos are now doing well in Washington as the Nationals. Was also terrible as a concert venue. While there visit the Biodôme and Botanical gardens nearby instead

“The swimming pool is great - parking watch out”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We parked in the lot Rue Via side. WATCH OUT! the parking lot RIPS YOU OFF They charged us $10 to park told us that we would then have access to ride to the top. LIES LIES. We got nothing. We could have parkied onthe street for less and not have been ripped off by them.

We went into the pool area to see the swimmer practice and took pictures there, Take your zoom / telephoto lens

“Where to begin”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is a sad sad place that should never have been, costed money that we just finished paying off, had taxes payed to by the residents of the area, and functionally does not even work (retracting tent). I will not go to events here for fear of my safety.

“OMG. What a dump!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Maybe it's because the glory years of the Expos were long gone and they were reduced to being my generation's answer to the Kansas City A's. By the time I saw them live, in person, in 2000 they were nothing better than a developmental squad to the big payroll clubs. The dark mezzanines, dated earth tones and dead crowd were NOT a good combination.
