Overview

This park, created for the 1996 Olympic Games held in Atlanta, boasts expansive greenery, rock gardens and artwork. The nearly 500,000 commemorative bricks that make up its main walkway were part of fund raising efforts for the Games. During scorching Atlanta summers, children frolic in the ground-level Olympic Rings, which periodically shoot streams of water through the seven rings. This park occasionally plays host to music concerts throughout the year. Flags honoring the nations that have played host to the Olympics in the past surround the fountain.
