Centennial Olympic Park - Review
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.

Centennial Olympic Park, Atlanta Reviews
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.
A lot of homeless. And one definitely gonna talk to you. While other gonna try to steal your belongings from your bag. Be careful. Police cannot do anything to this guys. By the way whole downtown full of them. In one hour u gonna be asked for change 3 to 8 times
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.
