About these ratings

Sandwiched between the Georgia Aquarium and the CNN Center is the Centennial Olympic Park, a 21-acre patch of land that features lush paths of grass, artwork, pools and fountains. The park was originally built for the 1996 Olympic Games and was a centerpiece of the festivities; now, it's one of the most visited areas of the city.

One of the most well-known parts of the park is the 251 water jets of the Fountain of Rings. One TripAdvisor says, "Our kids loved the ring fountains and the little show that was put on with them was nice, too." There are four water shows a day, during which the jets are "choreographed" to various songs.

The park is free and open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is accessible by the Dome-GWCC-Philips Arena-CNN and Peachtree Center MARTA rail stations. Check the park's calendar before you go, as it hosts many events throughout the year, including concerts and festivals.
