Centennial Olympic Park
This park, created for the 1996 Olympic Games held in Atlanta, boasts expansive greenery, rock gardens and artwork. The nearly 500,000 commemorative bricks that make up its main walkway were part of fund raising efforts for the Games. During scorching Atlanta summers, children frolic in the ground-level Olympic Rings, which periodically shoot streams of water through the seven rings. This park occasionally plays host to music concerts throughout the year. Flags honoring the nations that have played host to the Olympics in the past surround the fountain.
My sons love playing in the water. And for me its a nice place to relax in the ATL. The best time to visit is in the summer so that the kids will enjoy the water. But the only problem I had was the traffic the streets can be a bit confusing especially if your like me; from a small town.
We love it here...There is shopping, food outdoor activities it's all available. Beautiful skyline, Phillips Arena, CNN, Tower Museum. Concerts in the park,ice skating. We are blessed with mild weather in Atlanta and the is the central spot, place to be. Also, the aquarium will be here next year. Well worth the trip!
Wonderful place of history for all African American, as well as other nationalities and the experience is wonderful. A wonderful place to bring your whole family and friends because it is a place of education as well.
Whenever my daughter just wants to get out the house...centennial park is always the place, especially when the budget is low. The summer time is awesome, you can visit several of the fountains, the dancing fountain is a child's favorite. It's just an energetic place to be.
Great people, great hospitality, catered to all ages and very open... welcomes kids in the summer to swim in the olympic fountain of rings... free concerts, great grounds crew and management staff. Fun events and so convenient to CNN center, midtown and other Atlanta attractions.
A building to host the Olympics is a monument to the best in our human essence. Competition for excellence in performance, tracking the personal stories of the heroes and heroines who lend the juice to the rigor of the sports, the awe for the ultimate effort that is present in every record broken, the invisible international support that is transmitted via television and radio, the color and music and organized ballet of athletes during opening ceremonies, the display of integrity needed to solve the moral dilemmas played out every day, the beauty of bodies and the faces of willpower, all of these are the best we have to offer as the human race.
Running through the fountains on the ground will bring the kid back in you. The park hosts summer concerts on Wednesday nights and is very family friendly, with mothers chasing children and everybody dancing. Great fun!
