  • We enjoyed a tour of the Montreal Olympic facility, our guide Jeff did an excellent job - we learned a number of new facts we weren't aware of. The highlight for us was a walk through the aquatic cent...  more »

  • We went intending only to ride up the tower but there was a tour starting of the Parc Olympique so we decided to join in. We are glad we did as it added so much to our visit. Quick history of the 1976...  more »

  • Awesome location. Highly recommend a quick tour, though a little pricey, it is worth having a look as a tourist. Especially for the 2026 World Cup wanna goers. Gives yah an idea and an appreciation for how they change the stadium around for different events. Also, the tower has some amazing views from the observation deck. Definitely a must see. Highest leaning tower as well, so don't pass that up. And the unique elevator.
  • I love visiting this place. It's a place of hallowed ground. I was in awe of the athletes that performed here in 1976 and am inspired by their accomplishments every time I visit. I feel their athletic spirit and drive every time I bisit, read the words & look at the pictures of their accomplishments. I like how the City has repurposed this property and hope that Olympic dreams sparkle in the hearts of the young athletes that are now able to use the facilities.
  • One can buy daily pass for 10 CAD and enjoy swimming in all the pools. Not many people know about this relaxing place. There is an obstacle trail for kids and adults to enjoy. There is also lane swim and gym upstairs plus a small cafe.
  • It was an awesome park! It easy to go there by train. I enjoyed the time there.
  • This is a really great place to visit if you have never been. The 45 degree Leaning Tower is the tallest structure of its kind in the world and the views of Montreal in all directions is just fantastic. There are many other things to see here other than the tower. The planetariums, the surrounding parks and structures within the Olympic Park itself. From what I understand in 4 years they will be hosting some of the World Cup games in the surrounding areas and the Olympic Park is planning to build an outside Observatory on top of the 45 degree Tower. That should be very cool when it's finished!
