The Olympic Park was the pride and joy of Montrealers when it was built for the 1976 summer Olympics. They nicknamed it the "Big O". Now the Olympic Park has been re-named the "Big Uh-Oh!" because of the money it has cost the city to maintain the structure. That said, it does not take away from the spectacular architecture- or the thrill of riding up the elevator tower and watching the city fall away from you through the glass walls in front of you. Also making the trip in that direction of town worth it are the Biodome, Botanical Gardens and the Insectarium, all clearly indicated and none further than a five minute walk from the Olympic Stadium.
