This park is a must-see if you’re in Atlanta! Most other attractions are within walking distance and plenty of events occur at the Centennial Olympic Park. Make sure you bring a water bottle because it gets HOT.

Centennial park is still beautiful and a historic left over from Atlanta's summer games. This park is also where one of the domestic terrorist bombs went off during the Olympics. It is a beautiful place to see with still much of it's Olympic glory beautifully preserved.

Large park previously hosting the Olympics in 1996. Nice fountains, some playground space, a lot of open grass areas, etc. In the center next to Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, other museums, CNN, etc.

A huge park originally built for the Olympics. There’s so much that goes on here. From the Olympic ring fountains that kids have played in since the 90’s, to ice skating in the winter, and lots of concerts during the year. Check this out if you’re ever in Atlanta!

I remember the Olympic Games of 1996. It was surreal to actually be here. I love the fact that it is in the center of the Aquarium, CNN Tower, Coca Cola museum and the Civil Rights museum.

Great park during the day! Went through at night and it can be pretty sketchy.

Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, the city's beautiful 21-acre Centennial Olympic Park is home to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola. When planning your trip, be sure to set an entire day aside for this area.

The Olympic park is right in the center of some of Atlanta's biggest attractions. Be sure to play in the fountain of Olympic rings.

Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta. This big patch of green in the middle of all these buildings was ground zero for the 1996 Olympics. It's beautiful here.

They have a lot of Olympic statues and monuments in and around this park. My favorite is the Fountain of Rings. The fountain is in the shape of the Olympic Rings and it shoots water intermittently. It's fun to see the young and not so young try to go from one end to the other without getting wet.

I also liked that they built a nice playground in the park, dedicated to children all over the world. Nice!

Have a picnic or just go for a walk here and I guarantee, you'll have a good day. Enjoy!!

The Centennial Olympic Park was prior to 1996 a run down area of downtown Atlanta, that was converted into a picturesque gathering of park space for people to enjoy during the 1996 Olympic Games.

A beautiful park in the middle of downtown Atlanta, Olympic Park is a perfect place to go for a jog or throw the frisbee with friends. The park is obviously home to some historic significance but is also a centralized area for many nice restaurants and bars. In the winter Atlanta usually puts up an ice skating rink and in the summer you can usually catch a couple concerts in the park.

Centennial Olympic Park is huge! It's a great spot to come with friends for a pick-up game of soccer or just hang out and have a picnic. It was humid when I was here, so the fountains were running and kids and adults alike were running through the water.

I enjoyed seeing the monuments and torches from the Olympics.

This park is one of the rare Olympic leftovers that continues to function well in its community. Very nice area to visit on a nice day, especially with the fountains if it's hot.

Centennial Olympic Park is central to the downtown/convention area. Grass and fountains make it a pleasant place for a stroll. It embraces the aquarium and Coke World.
