“Park History.” Centennial Olympic Park. Georgia World Congress Center, n.d. Web. 24 Mar. 2016. This website was made by the Georgia World Congress Center who has operational responsibility over Centennial Olympic Park. I chose this source because I believed it would be most informative accurate about Centennial Olympic Park. This source is about the history of the park. Centennial Olympic Park opened in 1996. In 1987, Billy Payne, the CEO of the Atlanta Committee for Olympic Games, proposed the idea of having the Olympic Games in the city of Atlanta. He sought out and captured the support of many city leaders in Atlanta, including Mayor Andrew Young. With a little help from the mayor he convinced the International Olympics Committee to let Atlanta host the next Olympic Games, Atlanta was surprisingly chosen in September 1990. 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...

Description of Centennial Olympic Park

My exterior built environment is Centennial Olympic Park. It is located at 265 Park Ave W NW, Atlanta, GA 30313, beside the SkyView. It was built in 1996 for the Summer Olympics. The artifacts there include the Fountain of Rings, the Gateway of Dreams, the Water Garden, and statues to other important people to the Olympics. (Click the names of the places for pictures and information) Each artifact is arranged along a path, and it is designed to allow easy access to each one. Each artifact is centered in its own circle to draw attention to it. The design makes it easy for a tour of the whole park. The layout of the site is almost completely rectangular along with triangular indents along the side. (Click here for a map of the park) The park is a wide open space, and it is easy to navigate for people on foot, and possibly people on bikes. The colors most in abundance are brown and gray, because the paths are made of brick and there are many statues that are made of metal. There are splashes of cream on some statues, and there are green benches scattered throughout the park. The site is welcoming, and makes me want to sit under a bench and relax. There are plenty of trees that provide shade from the sun, and the benches are placed all over the park. The site is used by people looking to see a historical site. It is used by people looking for somewhere aesthetically pleasing. Overall, the park is welcoming and invites people in to enjoy some time in a beautiful park....
