Olympic Basin

Olympic Basin

A legacy from the 1976 Summer Olympics, the Basin hosts sports groups in rowing, canoe-kayak, dragon boats, and high-performance championships and competitions.

The Olympic Basin extends over 2.2 kilometres in length; it is 110 metres wide and 2.5 metres deep. The Basin's unique installations and it's calm waters make it the pride of every rowing enthusiast.

The Basin's construction required the first major makeover of Île Notre-Dame. A part of the island was completely redeveloped so that buildings and related equipment and facilities could be built; these included:

  • Athletes' quarters
  • Administration pavilion
  • Grandstands
  • Hangars
  • Starting and finish tower
  • Control stations all along the Basin
