It is bound by Rue Sherbrooke to the west, Rue Viau to the north, Avenue Pierre de Coubertin to the east, and Boulevard Pie-IX to the south.

Structures in the district include the Olympic Stadium, Biodome, the Olympic Village, Maurice Richard Arena, Pierre Charbonneau Centre, Saputo Stadium, Famous Players' Starcité theater, and the Montreal Metro stations Pie-IX and Viau. Adjacent to the park across Rue Sherbrooke is Maisonneuve Park, which contains the Montreal Botanical Garden and Montreal Insectarium.
