We enjoyed watching the kids playing in the water springing up in the park...and just sitting and watching people. I felt secure because I notice police/security was very obvious in the park... The park was very clean and well kept.

The monuments are worth a visit, as are the fountains in which lots of kinds have the time of their lives. The park was clean and well maintained, spend about... More

This had a nice water/lights/music presentation in the middle of tourist areas. Little kids can get soaked and play while parents sit on the sidelines. Bring shoes that can get wet the ground is not foot friendly. Wednesday nights is free concert night and it is busy. I would suggest grabbing late dinner to go and eating it here after... More

Not only is this park beautiful, it is historic. It shows where the last olympic game was held in America. All in all, a great spot to hangout and just to soak in the beauty of Atlanta.

The park is near a lot of attractions like the Georgia Acquarium, the... More
