MARTA to Centennial Olympic Park

Centennial Olympic Park is in downtown Atlanta near the Peachtree Center MARTA station on red/gold lines and the GWCC MARTA station (currently closed due to the pandemic) on the blue/green lines. Explore Atlanta Olympics history, view the Fountain of Rings, take kids to the playground and check out events including Fourth of July fireworks and festivals such as the Sweetwater 420 Fest and Shaky Knees.

Things to Know

  • Both nearby rail stations are less than a 10-minute walk away from the park.
  • The nearby CNN Center and Peachtree Center have public restrooms and food courts.
  • The Atlanta Streetcar also stops next to the park — great to pair with a visit to the MLK Jr. Historic Site.
