Centennial Olympic Park is located in downtown Atlanta near the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center and Philips Arena. The park features water fountains, greenspace and regular activities throughout the year including ice skating, Wednesday WindDown concerts, Fourth of July fireworks and festivals such as the Sweetwater 420 Fest.
There are two MARTA stations that are close to Centennial Olympic Park: Peachtree Center MARTA station on the red/gold line and the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena Station on the blue/green rail line, both less than a 10-minute walk away.
Peachtree Center Directions
From the Peachtree Center Station, take the John Portman/Harris Street exit off the train platform, then follow the signs to Peachtree Street West. At street level, turn right and at the first intersection turn right again (west) to walk down Andrew Young International Blvd. to reach the center of the park (see map).
Or if you are trying to get to the ice skating rink, Children’s Museum, World of Coca-Cola or the Georgia Aquarium, follow the above directions but turn left at street level, then left again on Harris Street/John Portman Boulevard for a slightly shorter walk.
Dome Station Directions
From the Dome Station, follow the signs pointing to Philips Arena to exit the station. Go up the tall escalators and keep to the right to reach Centennial Olympic Park Drive. Walk straight ahead to reach the park (about a block away). Philips Arena will be on your left.
- Use Peachtree Center if you are coming from the red or gold line and the Dome station if you are traveling east-west on the blue or green line to avoid transferring trains.
- Both stations have access to a variety of restaurants — see Peachtree Center restaurants and Dome station restaurants if you plan to eat near the park.
- Download and use the MARTA On the Go app to get real-time train arrival information. Trains are every 20 minutes on the weekend and sometimes run more frequently during large events.
