Billy Payne looked out his office window which had a view of the “eyesore”, as described by Payne himself of a space that is now the park and it sparked an idea to create something great! Just as he got people on his side for support in getting Atlanta selected for the Olympics, he used that same energy to get private support as well as support from the public to build what is a beautiful symbol of community effort. Centennial Olympic Park is a big tourist attraction in Atlanta and a great place to relax on a hot summer day. I conclude that Centennial is a mecca of social interaction. When visiting just the other day a friend and I sunbathed while relaxing, eating, listening to music and even little studying. I saw many...
