Centennial Olympic Park - Atlanta
Centennial Olympic Park Centennial Park Review

Less than twenty years ago, the area that is now Centennial Olympic Park was a run-down part of town. It was decided to convert this land for visitors and residents to enjoy during the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games and for future generations.

After the Olympic Games, a large part of the park was closed and redesigned for daily public use. The park is now used for a variety of events, including the Fourth of July Celebration, Wednesday Wind Down concert series and Fourth Saturday Family Fun Days.

Gateway of Dreams - Atlanta
Gateway of Dreams

This sculpture is a tribute to the French aristocrat Pierre de Coubertin (1863-1937) who was the founder of the modern Olympic Games. The monument features the Olympic rings with the baron stepping through two Greek columns. As Coubertin once said, “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning, but taking part.”
