Built for the 1996 summer games, Centennial Olympic Park hosts millions of visitors every year on its wide lawns and walking paths. Many visitors come for concerts at the park's amphitheater, but you'll also want to check out the Fountain of Rings and the Skyview Ferris wheel. Be sure to look down as you walk through the park--the bricks beneath your feet are engraved with messages of people who donated money to build the park.

  • I love visiting Centennial Olympic Park, it´s beautiful and very clean. Perfect to enjoy a nice picnic or walk around.  more »
  • Very clean and well-kept park. I visited on a late rainy evening and spent about 20 minutes wandering around reading plaques and watching the fountain water show which is set to music. Worth a visit.  more »
  • We strolled around the park after visiting the aquarium. It was dark and we viewed the skyline, the ferris wheel, fountain and the Olympic rings. It was not crowded after dark in early February.  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.
