  • When the weather is nice you can certainly entertain a number of hours in the center of Atlanta, with built this park, the CNN building, Philips Center for basketball, and Coca Cola & a Seaquarium. Would you like more information about this region? You can always reach me via ALAN Travel.

  • We walked to this park from the World of Coke. It was a really hot day so the water park area was very busy. We didn't spend too much time there because of the heat but it is a very nice park  more »

  • The Centennial Olympic Park is a good place to spend some time with your children while you also enjoy the view and atmosphere. Kids can play all around with others and walk around the park. It is fairly clean. If you just want to read a book some where around, the place may also offer a good spot for that. It is also located in the middle of so many great attractions.
  • Relaxing stroll that allowed our kids to run safely in all directions. There were small pools around dedicated to the 100 years of the Olympics. We loved the Olympic ring fountains! We jumped in and out of them hoping to not get sprayed!! The kids were lucky and timed their jumps just right!
  • Very nice place to visit represents Atlanta well. But as a suggestion pack your own food. Buying food here can be very expensive. Although good quality just a little too costly. They also have a lot of events during the summer time in the park so is good to follow them on Facebook. I love taking my family here doing the summertime just to have something positive to do as a family
  • As most tourists know, this park is a huge attraction which was built for the Olympics. It has a fountain show, beautiful landscaping, and well-kept walkways. This park is gated and very clean and safe. The midtown location is centered between many other tourist areas. The only drawback is that the park has some construction underway at the moment. There were no signs or any indication of the duration of the construction. If you get the chance, this is definitely a great place to stop and enjoy some nature in the city.
  • Take a break in the beautiful park and think about what's next while in the summer the kids can play in the water fountains or the play grounds or just lay out on the green grass. You are surrounded with so many things to do in this one spot. Great place for couples, family time, or just walk the dog time. But just a great place.
