All Season Fun 10/28/2002

If you're looking for a place to chill, people-watch, play in the fountains, enjoy some tunes, throw a frisbee, catch some rays - this is the place to be. Spring/Summer, it's a haven for downtown.

A world away from home right at home 9/15/2002

The park is wonderful for family outings with the kids or simple picnics for those who are in love. Taking pictures at the park makes you feel as though you've takin a trip to another city for a week long vacation. It a real stress release and it's worth it. Pros: waterfalls, statues, kids park more

Greenland 5/20/2002

Centennial Olympic Park is a little more like Greenland (with not that much green) than Iceland (known for its greenery). Despite the lack of lawn, the park's still a nice break from the concrete and asphalt world of downtown Atlanta. Make sure to check out the Olympic sculpture on the north-west end of the park created by Peter Calaboyias. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    A decorative mosaic of grass-green patches and geometric shapes composed in red brick, Centennial Olympic Park is positioned between competing skyscrapers. This well-kept green space is a welcome complement to its urban environs. The Quilt of Remembrance, a memorial to those killed by the 1996 Olympic bombing, is the most notable of the park's artistic adornments. Kids love the liquid summer entertainment--jets of water bursting from the five rings of an Olympic logo, moving to the rhythm of music blasting from the loud speakers. Also during the summer, the park holds free concerts; John Cougar Mellencamp, Indigo Girls and Ray Charles are a few of the free acts that have performed in the past. Continuing festivities year-round, the winter sees holiday light decorations and an outdoor skating rink.
