Centennial Olympic Park
The $75 million, 21-acre Centennial Olympic Park (265 Luckie St., Atlanta, 404-222-7275) is the centerpiece of downtown Atlanta. With its Fountain of Rings, Great Lawn and Southern Company Amphitheater, the park provides a fantastic setting for a wide variety of outdoor entertainment. The park also connects the Georgia World Congress Center to the hotel district. Just a few miles away, Turner Field (755 Hank Aaron Drive, Atlanta), still sports the freestanding Olympic Cauldron that housed the Olympic flame. Although the city hosted the Olympics in 1996, many other sites in and around Atlanta provide today’s visitors with a brand-new experience, thanks to more than $2 billion worth of Olympic-related improvements. Visit Centennial Olympic Park for the latest happenings at the park.
