    Great to sit and people watch
    Great to sit and people watch. Saw many people having lunch or reading. Surrounded by attractions so park is a great place to rest while you are visiting all the nearby attractions. There weren’t huge crowds so easily could spread out and find a nice place to sit.

    Very nice but half of it was closed
    I was looking forward to coming here to see a former Olympic spot as well as the spot of the bombing and the Richard Jewel monument. I was very disappointed though that about half of the entire park was closed off due to what appeared to be them setting up for an event. We were still able to go to the Olympic rings but the bombing site and monument were closed off to the public at that time. We were still thankfully able to see it from a distance over the fence. It's a very nice park in the middle of the city though. We parked at the World of Coke parking deck and saw this as well as all of the other things in that area so being able to park in one spot for everything was helpful.

    I was expecting a bit more 🤷🏽‍♀️
    The Sky ride had a Great View! AC keeps you cool! You go around 3 times and that’s it. Not for “thrill-seekers”. I didn’t get a alcoholic beverage but they are offered before you get in line. Not sure if it’s worth the price but I enjoyed it. The windows could also be cleaned a little better for pictures/videos. Took a few pics & left.

    Great Downtown Park
    A great attraction in downtown Atlanta. Nice water features as well as play areas for children. The city did a great job turning this site of tthe 1996 Olympics into a user friendly park.

    Great for a morning walk
    Nice park to visit for experiencing sky views from the Ferris wheel. I thought the price was steep for the experience. However, it is a nice park and close to other attractions like the aquarium and Coke world. If you like being outdoors, it's great for a lunch or resting. There is also a playground if you are traveling with kids.

    Fun to Walk Around
    This park was right next to my hotel and very close to where I was going for work. I walked through it a few times. There is a lot to see. The Rings are the perfect photo op and there are great views of downtown Atlanta. There are a lot of homeless people wandering around but there is also a police/security presence. It didn’t take very long for me to systematically work my way through the park and see everything. The most humbling thing was the Quilt of Remembrance in honor of those killed and hurt during the bombing. And in the same area there is a fountain honoring Richard Jewell who was vilified until he was finally cleared and named a hero for his actions that day. It was great to see this place that was all over the news when I was a kid and see where it all happened.

    Worth a visit
    This is certainly not one of the greatest highlights of Atlanta, but it’s a worthy stop if you’re waiting for your reservation to come up at the Coca-Cola Museum or aquarium. The park is beautifully lit at night with a view of museums, the Ferris wheel, and downtown Atlanta. You can take selfies by the Olympic rings, find a tiny memorial in the middle of a fountain to the 1996 bombing, and even see the imprint of one of the nails from the bomb in the green, fanlike statue nearby. It’s a pleasant and large area with fountains and pathways, but it doesn’t take long to see and will be uncomfortable during the cold winter days or the infamous summer humidity.

    Downtown Greenspace
    Centennial Olympic Park commemorates hosting of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Serving as both a commemorative site and a hub for community engagement, the park offers a green space connecting the bustling city on all sides. There are numerous statues and fountains scattered throughout the park. The park started a trend for a remarkable wave of economic revitalization in downtown Atlanta, spawning numerous restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments in its vicinity.

Fun park with plenty of space for the kids to run around in. Next door to the aquarium and world of Coke. We had fun seeing the Olympic items and talking about the games with the kids. Good place to visit.

This is a really nice park and perfect for families. There is plenty of space to have a picnic or play soccer and photo opportunities with different monuments all around. Lots of stores and restaurants to explore along the way.

Having watched the 1996 Olympics on TV as a teenager, it was super neat to visit a place that I had seen as the backdrop for the Atlanta summer games. This park is right in the heart of Atlanta, near the CNN headquarters, Aquarium, World of Coca Cola, and Civil & Human Rights Museum. You can walk through the park, take photos with statues, fountains and the Olympic Rings.

Staying in the area so why not! We were lucky the weather was great. Beautifully laid out and clean. Lots of history to read throughout the park.

Probably a great time to go for crowds though not as beautiful as it would be in other times of the year. It’s a lovely park with lots of walking trails and surrounded by other family friendly tourist activities.

Beautiful park. The location is its best feature and you also must go to the feris wheel across the street. Not many things to do there but it’s great to just enjoy some sunbathing while reading a book.
