  • What a lovely beautiful park. Great for strolling around, great view of the city from the park. Great place for a relaxing time. Maybe summer is too hot there, but October was a great time to go and e...  read more »
  • Had loads of fun here, the place was really clean, the fountains looked great and there is plenty space to enjoy some generic sports with friends. 
  • The Olympic park is perfectly located at downtown Atlanta right in front of the CNN centre, unfortunately when we visited most of the park was closed for an event, we could only go to the fountain are...  read more »
  • Centennial Olympic Park is the epicenter of great Atlanta tourist attractions and well worth a visit. If you’re vacationing in Atlanta there’s a good chance you’ll end up here, just because it houses some of the best attractions that Atlanta has to offer. It’s a great park that connects many different sites you’ll want to visit. The park itself is very open and adorned with multiple fountains and waterfalls. You’ll find yourself walking the many paths to reach all the major destinations. Some of the things that the Centennial Olympic Park connects together all within walking distance are: The Aquarium, The Coca-Cola Experience, Phillips Arena, CNN Center, Skyview Atlanta, and many more. In the winter, we’ve seen skating rinks setup and the area decorated very nicely for the holidays. Now, we’ve only walked the park during the day and have always felt safe. We haven’t seen seedy elements within the park any of the times we’ve gone. However, just like any city, I would say you’d have to be vigilant when walking the area at night. The park also connects some great hotels. I would highly recommend staying in one of the hotels in the area so you can walk to most any attraction you want and can leave the car in valet for a few days. When visiting Atlanta, make sure you take the time to look around Centennial Olympic Park and see the great landscaping and remnants of the Olympics.
  • Beautiful Park. A visual success with exquisite water features. Going on a Wednesday afternoon was a fun accident as we got to enjoy the concert in the park. I watched mesmerised as they cued the Olympic water feature perfectly to the music. The beautiful weather didn't work either.
  • Beautiful crafted park. You can people watch. Take a few laps around. Jump into the sprinklers or get on the line for the Ferris wheel. Whatever tickles your fancy. It's a wonderful place to visit.
  • This is a very pretty park in downtown Atlanta, GA; great for walking around at night. The best part of this park are the beautiful fountains that light up and almost dance for you! You can stroll through anytime, but evenings are the most beautiful and least crowded!
  • The energy here will make you come back...for sure!!!! The love of the park setting and the romantic set up of a lovers walk, will make you cherish memories for years to come. There is something for every member of the family as well! I wish I could give it 10 stars!!!
