The Audio Walking Tour, which is downloadable via a smartphone, provides an opportunity for visitors to experience the Park at their convenience. At their own pace, visitors can enjoy and learn about Atlanta, Centennial Olympic Park and the continued legacy of the 1996 Olympic Games. This self-guided audio tour through the Park is packed with history, architecture, quirky trivia, original music and interviews. The walking tour begins and ends at the Parks Visitor Center and is an hour long loop.
Prior to the 1996 Olympic Games, thousands of private donors purchased commemorative Olympic bricks, representing a donation toward the construction of Centennial Olympic Park. In all, nearly 500,000 bricks were sold, each with a special message or name, raising roughly $17.5 million. The bricks now make up the sidewalks within the Park.
With all the exciting improvements coming to Centennial Olympic Park courtesy of the Park Visioning project, there will be bricks that must be relocated to another area of the Park.
All affected bricks will be inventoried and stored safe, until the Park is able to reinstall them after the hardscape work is complete.
During construction, there will be periods of time where the pedestrian access to certain clusters of bricks will be impacted and restricted, as many places in the Park will become active work sites.
If a section of bricks cannot be accessed or has been temporarily removed, it will be indicated when you look up your brick on this page.
All of the Park’s bricks will be in place by early 2019, when the projects in the Park are completed..
