The Centennial Olympic Park began as the venue for the 1996 Olympic games.  As a reminder of that time, Quilt Plazas and Water Gardens tell the story of the Olympics.   Now the Park is a popular location for year-round activities, programs, and concerts attracting visitors and locals alike.  During lunch the park green space with its skyscraper backdrop becomes a peaceful escape for mid-day workers.
