Montréal Olympic Park is a district of sporting attractions and was home to the 1976 Summer Olympics. Attractions include The Montréal Tower, Olympic Stadium, The Esplanade, and The Sports Centre.
The Montréal Tower
At 165 metres, the Montréal Tower is the tallest inclined tower in the world! The glass-encased funicular brings visitors on a breathtaking two-minute ride to the top of the Tower. Any time of day, the Tower Observatory’s 360º panorama offers spectacular views.
The Olympic Stadium
Since its inauguration in 1976, more than 67 million visitors have come and it has, along with the famous Montréal Tower, become the international symbol of Montreal. The Olympic Stadium is the largest covered amphitheater in Québec, with seating for 56,000 spectators in the stands and up to 60,000 when the floor is used. The Stadium hosts a wide range of events from all over the world including both amateur and professional sports events. The amphitheater has also played host to numerous salons, exhibits and shows—from monster truck rallies to rock concerts by the biggest names in music, soccer matches and baseball games. The Stadium is open for guided tours.
The outdoor spaces of the Olympic Park’s Esplanade can accommodate small and large events a like. It is made up of nine surfaces of varying sizes spread across four levels.
The Esplanade’s programming is incredibly diverse, with something available for everyone—from sports activities to cultural events. Its role is to be a place for pop culture that’s inclusive, festive and accessible to all.
