As Centennial Olympic Park nears its 20th birthday, an effort is underway to raise $46.5 million to enhance downtown’s premier gathering space, one of the most catalytic legacies from the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.
The Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA), the state agency that oversees the park as part of its 220-acre campus, is exploring the feasibility of the capital campaign to fund major improvements to the 21-acre green space.

Ummmm.....where is my favorite park feature in the future renderings?

I'm talking about the meandering creek that flows on the side of the park (I think northeast side). It seems like whenever renovations happen to malls and parks, water features fall victim.

This is the quietest, most peaceful, and best aspect of the park. I don't see it in the renderings of what they want to do to the park. Am I missing it?

It is nice. There are several spots with benches along it and small "pools". It could be the most peaceful spot Downtown.

How have I never known about that? All those times just walking around the park and that's the thing I would like the most.

It's really off the beaten patch, which makes it that much more enjoyable. Even when the park is crowded, there aren't many people in this area. Just a few people sitting on benches and sometimes there are children dipping their hands in the water and splashing around a bit, but it's almost always calm.

The fact that most people don't know about it, I think means that they are going to get rid of it and probably nobody will complain. But I will miss it tremendously, I really hope it's not on the chopping block.
