The history of the Olympics being held here is what drew me to the park. Its just beautiful with much open space for sporting, a nice Olympic Rings water fountain, several sculptures, and a beautiful memorial garden dedicated to the memory of the Olympic bomb attack. I spend the most time in the memorial garden. It was moving and emotional... More

this is my grandson's favorite thing to visit next to the aquarium. There is even an outdoor grill that makes some of the best burgers you can find! A hit when everyone is hungry!

The Centennial Park is right in the middle of all the action! While we were in Atlanta we spent our afternoons here hanging out by the fountain. Our children loved running through the Olympic Rings to cool off. Within this park there are two small playgrounds, the Ferris wheel, Coca Cola Museum, Hall of Fame, Convention Center and the Georgia... More

This park is absolutely beautiful with great views of Atlanta and the aquarium, coca cola world, and can are in walking distance. There are many great photo spots here, and it is kept very clean. If you are in the area for other attractions it is worth a quick visit.

It amazed me how clean the entire park was considering the amount of people walking there. I can only imagine it when the Olympics were there. Sorry I missed it. But you get the feeling as you walk around.

A nice bit of green in the city, there was live music and of course the fountain for people to play in. A nice setting for the aquarium and other near by attractions.

There is a huge open space for easy walking , a little up and down at times . The place is dotted with Olympic themed art works . A number of entry and exit points . The leisurely walk will take you from the CNN bldg to the other side to the World of Coca cola in less than 10... More

Lovely place to chill out, great to relax, watch the world go by and it's very quiet despite being in the heart of it all. Great for kids with the water fountain and I like the new big wheel they have here, although I didn't go on it. Not to go through during late evening I feel as I saw... More

I love Centennial Olympic Park for walking and site seeing. We love the civil rights coke & museum. It's close to marta which is always smarta. Great food places nearby. Legal Seafood and food court in CNN building. Great for all ages.

Had so much fun strolling through the park. Ran through the water like kids and just had a great time. I haven't been to Atlanta in years so I got to ride the Ferris wheel (new to me) which had such beautiful views!
