  • The park has been converted to walking paths and a small play area. It’s central to the aquarium and the Coca Cola plant. Worth a stop or walk through if your downtown.  more »
  • If you happen to be downtown Atlanta, do not hesitate to spend a while walking the Centennial Park. The fountains are great, the monuments too. It is enlightening, as we remember the happenings...  more »
  • This is a well maintained park in the center of Atlanta right by all the main attractions like the Aquarium, Coca-Cola World and State Farm Arena. We liked the features of the area like the fountains....  more »

  • Centennial is a great park for sunset strolls, picnics, and people walking. If you’re visiting our great city, you must come here! There’s statues and monuments throughout the park from the Olympics. The park is well kept and I’ve never had a bad interaction here (I live across the street and walk almost daily!). There’s lots of food nearby as well. Great park!
  • Great place to get out of all the people in Atlanta. Many playgrounds with some pretty cool things. Even a pirate ship that you can rock. The fountain are great to watch. There are many public bathrooms in the park. Make sure to get out 15 minutes before they close because they usually close the gates early. Each playground is for a different age group so make sure to take that into consideration. A great place to take a walk. The trees even provide shade from southern heat. In conclusion, it's a great place to go to
  • Dang, this park is impressive! I really enjoyed it. There is lots of seating, security around enforcing rules. I love the atmosphere - kids and family but also very quiet and peaceful areas. The park is huge and offers great views of downtown Atlanta. Absolutely a must see! Will be back to continue exploring the next time I’m in Atlanta!
  • Really cool place to visit. Lots of historical things from the 1996 games. Make sure to bring your camera!! Love the splash park for the kiddos and even adults on those super hot days. Lots of food and things to do near by. This place is very well maintained and clean.
  • Oh my goodness!!!! MY grandson really really enjoyed himself!! So did the rest of the families that we're there. The atmosphere just lifted my heart and mind, and the children gave me a spirit of gratitude. Oh how much their joy ministered to my soul!!! I left the water fountains refreshed and renewed. The water show and music had the children in awe!!! So grateful to have a place like Centennial Park in the midst of this busy city. And it didn't cost a dime . Free peace, free joy, free delight, and such mental freedom for all.
