#2 of 19 in Historic Sites in Atlanta
Built for the 1996 summer games, Centennial Olympic Park hosts millions of visitors every year on its wide lawns and walking paths. Many visitors come for concerts at the park's amphitheater, but you'll also want to check out the Fountain of Rings and the Skyview Ferris wheel. Be sure to look down as you walk through the park--the bricks beneath your feet are engraved with messages of people who donated money to build the park.

  • 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 »
  • As a fan of Olympic history, it was a beautiful place to visit and experience. I enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful nations' flags wave in the air around the water park area. The water park area appe...  more »

  • Our kiddos loved this park. There are some much interesting information to read about and nice clean play areas for them to have fun. Both of my kids especially enjoyed the artwork and sculptures all around the park. Beautiful scenery and clean. You will definitely be back again to visit once we're back in town.
  • We really enjoyed this park! The fountains and water features are really unique and relaxing. The kids all love the splash ground (it does get really crowded mid-day when it's hot out, so be mindful if you're bringing a younger child). Our favorite though was the Olympic fountain music and light show in the evening. Such a fun free activity for the whole family. Plus, the park is really pretty all lit up, especially the torches.
  • This park adds some beautiful greenspace to downtown Atlanta. One end of it has a nice playground for kids. Between the center of the park and the other end, there is a fountain with the shapes of Olympic rings that kids enjoy playing in. But the fountain seemed little different from other fountains I've seen elsewhere. Only by looking at the base of the fountain did I recognize the Olympic ring shapes. Still, it's a nice touch. Educational plaques at various places around the park provide information about the Olympics and other things. I enjoyed reading those, but persons less interested in history might not. An amphitheater is located near one end of the park (the end farthest from the playground). A concession stand in the park offers snacks and drinks, and it even has a small amount of indoor seating. But it was closed when I walked by it late Tuesday afternoon, May 15, 2018. The park offers a nice place to enjoy nature in a sense in the downtown area. And it is conveniently located near several downtown attractions such as the Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, the College Football Hall of Fame, and CNN studios. The Atlanta streetcar has a stop across the street from the park. MARTA also has stops nearby. I urge persons in the downtown area to take a few minutes, or perhaps an hour, to walk through the park and enjoy it.
  • Great place to sit in the sun, have a snack at the food stand, and run through the water fountain. We have visited thisnplaceany time with our grand kids, they love it. There's always new friends for them to meet and play with. You can also bring a blanket and have a picnic in the grass. There's a huge area for chilling. It's located in walking distance from the Ga. Aquarium and Coke museum
  • Nice place, especially the Olympic fountain, great for kids on a hot day. But lots of homeless and really, not much of anything else. Nice to look at and walk around but I won't go out of my way next time I'm in town.
