Centennial Olympic Park was the location of much activity during the Olympics, and it still shows. The expanse of lawns, fountains in which children can play, and paved plaza are studded with Olympic torch like lamps and a bronze monument to the modern French founder of the Olympics. At one end of the park, near the CNN building, is a wonderful fountain that children can love. The spray is controlled by some kind of computer program to vary the pattern, volume, and type of spray coming from a flat concrete area. Thus, there is no fountain bowl where a child can drown. The fountain is surrounded by a broad array of concrete benches and is well supervised by police. Best of all this is free...a great place to take the kids on a hot Atlanta day.

Address: 265 Park Avenue West, Atlanta
