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.

The City of Montreal really needs to get its act together to clean up this facility. Spent and afternoon at the Biodome and was amazed at the trash. CLEAN IT UP!

Canada/Montreal has a reason to be proud of this complex. My wife, kids and myself took the metro, then walked to take in the site in Feb [ where not much was happening]. The grand scale, posters and other art work gives a good accounting of it's history and importance in Canada's history. Bravo

We arrived early so we could walk all around the Big O and check it out. As we walked towards it, it certainly looked pretty cool and interesting. The '76 Olympics were a long time ago and this place shows its age. It really is a cement behemoth and there was construction everywhere outside. Inside it was well marked and... More

We visited the Olympic Park to have some fun at Wibit Sundays. It was a blast. The obstacle course is set up in the Olympic pool and we also had access to the diving platforms during our session.

It's great the first time you go then you find out the tower was completed after the olympics were held in fact six month after they opened the tower. It has great views but in the city there is a better place to see the whole city and get great pictures. This is over priced and now over secured you... More

They were renovating the main stadium when we visited the old Olympics area. It was worth it though to visit the biodome whislt we were there and to have a walk around the gardens adjoining the stadium.

The observation tower in Olympic Park is an amazing phenomenon - the slope of the tower is almost unreal, and the views down to the old Olympic Park and out over the surrounding countryside are great. The velodrome below (for bicycle racing) is in the shape of a bicycle helmet! Best seen from the top of the observation tower.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood 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.
