New plans for Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park

ATLANTA — The original developer of Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park has come up with ideas to redesign parts of the park.

The Georgia World Congress Center is planning a makeover for the park. Assistant park manager Joe Skopitz said the goal is to get people to spend some time in the park rather than just passing through.

Several new features include better water features with real wading, a beer garden and terrace restaurant.

The great lawn would remain an open space. Renting it out is one of the park's main revenue sources.

Plans call for new features around the park's edge and more on-street parking.

There is no timeline for major improvements, and no funding sources have been identified.

Great idea to waste more money. Throw out the old and bring in the new! For what? To give well-connected people jobs? Come on Mayor. Your "colors" have been showing for years already. I hope there are no plans for the City to pay for any of this!
