"Olympic Stadium ( Stade Olympique)" Olympic Stadium Tip by sunnywong

Olympic Stadium, Montreal: 19 reviews and 22 photos

  Olympic Stadium, Montreal, Quebec
by sunnywong

The stadium, built for the 1976 summer games, is beautiful to look at but not very practical. It's hard to heat, and the retractable fabric roof, supported by the tower, has never worked properly. Nevertheless, it's home to the Expos of baseball's National League and is used for events like Montréal's annual car show.

A trip to the top of this tower, the world's tallest tilting structure, is very popular; a two-level cable car can whisk 90 people up the exterior of the 890-ft tower.

Address: 4141 av. Pierre-de-Coubertin
Directions: At Parc olympique de Montréal
