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.

A very beautiful place to just relax and chill.... we had a wonderful time outside enjoying the breeze and hearing the children laughing while they climb. It was very peaceful and I can't wait to bring my niece and nephew.
A park is an area of natural, semi-natural or planted space set aside for human enjoyment and recreation or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats. It may consist of grassy areas, rocks, soil and trees, but may also contain buildings and other artifacts such as monuments, fountains or playground structures. In North America, many parks have fields for playing sports such as association football, baseball and football, and paved areas for games such as basketball. Many parks have trails for walking, biking and other activities. Some parks are built adjacent to bodies of water or watercourses and may comprise a beach or boat dock area. Often, the smallest parks are in urban areas, where a park may take up only a city block or less and is ideally within a 10-Minute Walk of its residents. Urban parks often have benches for sitting and may contain picnic tables and barbecue grills. Parks have differing rules regarding whether dogs can be brought into the park: some parks prohibit dogs; some parks allow them with restrictions (e.g., use of a leash); and some parks, which may be called "dog parks", permit dogs to run off-leash. The largest parks can be vast natural areas of hundreds of thousands of seventy meters (thousands of square miles), with abundant wildlife and natural features such as mountains and rivers. There are also amusement parks which have live shows, fairground rides, refreshments, and games of chance/skill. Amusement parks are the largest types of park in the world. In many large parks, camping in tents is allowed with a permit.
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.
I had such a fun time here!! This was my second time to Atlanta and also to this park. We came and danced and we were filmed and people watched. It was an amazing experience here!
A great area where you can enjoy relaxing on a bench, bring a picnic, or learn a lot about when the Olympics where in Atlanta. Only complaint is there were a lot of homeless. They didn't bother anyone though.
