This park is a magnet of sorts. It was built as part of the infrastructure for the Centennial Olympics, but the love that people have for it now far surpasses its purpose. Grassy lawns, shady trees and pleasant path have made it a favorite.
There’s a lovey water show called the Fountain of Rings that doubles as a play areas; its something that you could watch for hours, especially with the kids frolicking about in the centre. Various sculptures are located over the place.
Another intriguing feature are the public engraved and donated bricks that went into the park’s making and also paid for it. Thanks to the crowd it draws, various other attractions have also sprung up nearby, such as the World Of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Children’s Museum of Atlanta.

Awesome place to visit, Ample space, paid parking. Me and my wife visited this place with our daughter. We liked this place very much. It is clean and well maintained. but overall extraordinary. I would recommend to check opening and closing time before you visit.
It was a nice open place that was nicely decorated for the holiday. A great place to take your family just to hang out. We didn't really go through it thoroughly. Just passed through coming out of the aquarium but its nice to come out of a place to walk into something else that happens to be something your family can take advantage of if you'd like.
What an aesthetically incredible park! Centennial Olympic Park located in Downtown Atlanta fascinated me so much that we(my family & I)ended up spending more than an hour here appreciating the Fall Foliage and clicking tonnes of pictures. The Fountain of Rings, The Bronze Arch statue and the Statue of The founder of Olympic Committee are the predominant Charms of the park. Most importantly, these statues are a tribute to the Olympic Games. I was totally smitten with the creativity of Bronze Arch(Fan) Statue.
This wonderful park in the center of Atlanta was a surprise. Very large, clean park with lots to do with kids. We spent time at the splash pad, walked through the trees along the little Japanese garden with a creek where we found the clean bathrooms. The CNN building, Aquarium and other attractions are all located around the park. We took the MARTA downtown and walked the few blocks from the station so we did not have to worry about parking. Very nice to have such efficient public transportation in Atlanta.
For a park, this one is big. That's about all I could say. It's big. Didn't go through the whole thing because I was waiting for the aquarium to open. There's usually people with dogs and kids running around and all that, but that's to be expected.
