Such a fun place to visit. The scenery is beautiful and they have fun attractions that you can do. We choose to rent a pedal car, it was lots of fun, but became quite tiring toward the end of our rental. We also were there in July and with so many people navigating around the port, you had to be... More

A boat ride may be ok from there but it's location is a little far from the main areas of interest and I thought it was not really worth the effort. It is not particularly attractive and mainly residential.

This area is doubtless very busy during the summer months but in November, with a little snow on the ground, it was a wonderful place to walk around and enjoy the fresh air

Perfect destination to walk for long along the riverside with parks and benches. Very beautiful and clean. If you are in montreal this is the place to go.

Walking through the old port of Montreal is like taking a trip back in the colonial days, when the first settlers came up the St Laurence river, more than 300 years ago

I was here in early October 2016 and all the food stalls and shops were closed doing the day,a major part of the wharf is being knocked down and renovations happening to other derelict building.A( coal ?)ship was being loaded with much noise and dust.It still needs a lot of work to bring it up to a tourist attraction.

I almost missed this treasure because all the beauty was hidden behind the construction and closed down shops (I'm assuming for the Winter). Walking along the water was so peaceful. The Fall leaves and benches that lined the walkway was quite the sight. Must!!

As a child I was captivated by the St. Lawrence, its power and frozen grandeur. That's remained true, even in my older years, and Montreal has laid long walking paths to take advantage of its traditional reason for existing.

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.
