Back when I visited Centennial Olympic Park, I feel I should’ve given it more praise than I did initially—this green space is sprawling, inviting, and utterly convenient to any sort of main attraction or restaurant you may want to enter. While it was uncomfortably busy the time I visited, the purpose of this place is extremely meaningful and pleasant. The aquarium and Coca-Cola Museum are right across the street, and a delicious pizza restaurant called Max’s is a few minutes away on foot…just to name a few ideas. But in the park, see the rings left over from Atlanta’s Olympics jaunt back in the day; admire the fountains and gardens; and people-watch until you drop. Hehe. You get the picture.

I highly recommend Centennial Olympic Park to anyone visiting Atlanta or anyone in the community!

Centennial Olympic Park is as historical as it is beautiful. Here you'll catch a beautiful view of the Atlanta skyline, Skyview Atlanta Ferris Wheel, and the greenery that surrounds the busy downtown district. There is no fee to enter and being that it is a public park, you can obviously stay as long or as little as you'd like. Many of the attractions, such as museums and the aquarium, are located right on these grounds so you'll be able to knock several places off of your list.

The entire park as of right now is fenced off but there are a few spots that allow you to enter. But they close it all off around 5 or 6pm which is too bad. Nice park. Well maintained. Some random statues and such relating to the Olympics spread out. Lotsa green grass. Cross the street to the aquarium, Coke museum and Civil Rights center or on other side the ferris wheel. pleasant place to relax, people watch, etc.

This park is very nice and is a hub to many attractions. It has very weird hours, opens late and closes early. It’s very, very obvious they are trying to keep the homeless from sleeping in the park, so the limit the number of open gates and make sure the entire park is closed well before dark and open late morning. It’s really a wasted effort since all of the surrounding areas are consumed with people sleeping on the streets.

Coco Cola Museum and the Civil and Human Rights Center is located at Centennial Park. Great place to have a picnic if it is allowed. Children’s playground is a major attraction for families with young kids.

We were disappointed that we could not get into the park to walk around. We had one full day in Atlanta, a Monday, thought we’d head over before we went to the aquarium only to find all gates around park locked at 9:30 am. After almost 5 hours in the aquarium, we headed back to Centennial Park….it was probably about 2-3pm, gates still locked!
Don’t know what the reasoning for this was. A passerby mentioned that they may have locked the gates because there was a game the previous night and they were afraid of the park getting trashed. We did manage to get pictures of the Olympic rings that are outside of the park.

This was the location of the Atlanta Chinese Lantern Festival in January. It was the perfect size for their set up.The Amphitheater was covered just enough to keep up dry from the gentle sprinkles of rain while we watched the special show. The lights were fantastic.

We'd bought a picnic in the food court at the CNN tower and wanted somewhere outside to eat the food on a sunny day and headed for the park. We'd been told about the dancing fountains, but they are so much better than expected - water moving to music, just lovely. The park is big with plenty of seating and toilets - a perfect place to relax in central Atlanta

A very nice park. Be sure to walk the perimeter to view all the monuments located within the park. We visited just as the winter Olympics were wrapping up so timing was nice as well.

A pic in front of the rings is a must! Also be sure to sit at the fountain and look down the length of park - relaxing.

The weather was in the 60s for us during our February visit which made for a couple of nice afternoons to explore the park.

They have built many other attractions around it (all close walking distance), so lots to do including the Civil Rights Center, Aquarium, College Football Hall of Fame, SkyView, and World of Coca Cola.

Huge Park in the middle of downtown ATL. Just walking around the park you see a lot of tourist hot spots like the CNN center, coca cola world and the ferris wheel. The park itself is super clean, a lot of diversity and is very safe. Plenty of grassy areas for a picnic, walking the dogs and much more. Plenty of good restaurants nearby as well. Parking is a bit tricky but any major city has the same problem. The Lantern festival was going on when we went but they do not allow dogs (we had our small 10 lbs pup with us so that was a no go) A ton of great photo spots.
