A district of Montreal, created to lend a venue to the Summer Olympics of 1976, Olympic Park is located on the Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue and is roughly bound by Rue Sherbrooke and Rue Viau. It is here that the iconic, funicular Olympic Tower is located, which is home to many sport facilities like the seven state-of-the-art aquatic pools. Olympic Park is also home to many other structures like the Olympic Village and the Montreal Biodome.
The Olympic Village, located within the district Olympic Park in Montreal, was built for the 1976 Olympics. The twin-tower building was designed by Architect Roger Taillibert, who has designed a number of other structures in the park, including the Olympic Pool. Located on Sherbrooke Street, the Olympic Village was a temporary home to almost all athletes participating in the international championship and is now used as commercial complex.
Montréal Biodôme is a science center and ecological zoo that is home to four distinct ecosystems.

The Environment Place amphitheater presents films, performances and lectures, all related to conservation and environmental protection. Admission fees listed are for the Biodôme only, so please check the website for other package prices.
Roger Taillibert's magnificent building takes a beating in the court of public opinion, but it remains Montreal's most stunning architectural achievement. The enormous bowl features a perpetually disintegrating roof that was originally meant to be retractable, while the inclined tower affords an incredible view over the city.
Located close to Olympic Park, this area was an 18-hole golf course until the mid-1970s. The course has since been cut back and much of it turned into a popular public green space.

Not heavily frequented by tourists, this is nonetheless a great spot to spend an afternoon.
