Centennial Olympic Park is a greenspace in downtown Atlanta closest to the Peachtree Center MARTA station on red/gold lines and the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena station on the blue/green lines. Explore water fountains, gardens, a playground and events including Wednesday WindDown concerts, 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.
