    Great view of the Atlanta Skyline! During the summer the water show from the Olympic Rings are a enjoyable experience to watch for families especially the kids enjoying the water works!

    The benches at the Fountain of Rings allow you to enjoy the water and music spectacle—four times a day, tunes are timed to coincide with water displays that shoot sprays 15 feet to 30 feet high. Read more

    Great for July 4th where they have a special celebration, concert and fireworks. Also, they usually have a mini ice skating rink set up around December. Nice place to come with family, friends or even

    The closest MARTA station is the Dome station on the blue/green line (about a 5-minute walk to the south end of the park near CNN). You can also exit at Peachtree Center on the red/gold line. Read more

    This is the largest downtown park in the country developed during the last 25 years and spans 21 acres. Each ring in the Olympic Fountain is 25 feet in diameter which is large enough for 2 cars!

    Built for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Ceremony, this park is one of the most photographed in Atlanta, mainly due to the children frollicking in the dancing fountain.

    For excellent photographs of Centennial Olympic Park and Downtown Atlanta, take the elevator at the Glenn Hotel to their rooftop Skylounge. Open during the evenings Monday through Saturday.

    During Christmas its very pretty but avoid it at all cost if a Football game is happening parking prices double and triple and if you are unfortunate to be leaving when the football people do.HORRIBLE

    Designed as a town square at Atlanta's 1996 Olympics, it became a center of controversy when a bomb killed two people & injured 111 others. Militant anti-abortionist Eric Rudolph was held responsible.

    There is something always going on. You may see food trucks, performers, and ice skating in the winter. Don't forget the new 200 hundred feet carousel near the park. Maybe just enjoy the weather.

    A great place to come at night for a stroll in the park or for concerts. Lots of things go on in this park. Lots of opportunity to come & be a part of something.

    Amazing initiative: this park was partly funded by the donations of thousands coming from individuals who "bought" bricks engraved with a short message of their choice, still in the park.

    Take a walk around and look at all the monuments. A nice park in the middle of downtown Atlanta close to a lot of other things like the Georgia dome, CNN, and college football hall of fame.

    This one is more touristy, but you can find some cool stuff here, like the World of Coke and the Georgia Aquarium. Take Marta to The Dome/CNN Center stop.

    Come at night, when eight 65-foot lighting towers enhance the beauty of the park. They are stylized reproductions of the markers that led ancient Greeks to major public events.

    Don't get too close to the fountains when the music show is about to start or else the policeman will start blowing his whistle at you. Otherwise, have fun at the fountains.
