Take a quick shower in Centennial Olympic Park!
Since the city planners in their remarkable foresight decided not to plant many trees in the park (God forbid that anyone would want shade in Atlanta in the summer), they instead installed a largish fountain. Which is great if you're a kid, but it's not so interesting if you're an adult, because you can't exactly run around with a bunch of kindergarteners, not without seeming a bit, well, questionable.
Visit CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK!
Many moons ago, someone thought that Atlanta would be a fine place to have the world's largest sporting event. Many drugs and bribes were assumed to be part of this decision. More bribes and kickbacks permitted the construction of beautiful Centennial Olympic Park, a smallish, fairly useless park downtown. Amazingly, the park was built in large part with private donations. Civic-minded citizens bought bricks which have since been used to pave the park. Now you can stroll and laugh at various names that you might find humourous, like Ms. Amanda Hugginkiss.
It was purposely built for the 1996 Olympics as a commemorative park once the Games had finished. People could buy a brick and have it placed in the walkways which was a nice way to be involved. It is a beautiful area, very peaceful, there is are a lot of plants and trees, and this wonderful fountain that is ideal for when it is hot to leap in and out of like I did!
