    Description

    Originally known as Central City Park in the 1970s, Woodruff Park was created through a generous donation from Robert W. Woodruff, former president of The Coca-Cola Company. Each year, more than 5 million people use Woodruff Park. The park’s programs bring additional people Downtown each week, and special events add 10,000 Downtown visitors annually.

    Located in the heart of Downtown, the stories of Robert W. Woodruff Park and its surroundings touch on some of the most influential people and events of Atlanta’s modern history. From the Civil Rights movement to the birth and growth of the Coca-Cola Company, you’ll hear about the buildings that once stood in and around the Park, about those who bought and sold the property that is now part of the park, and major historical events that happened nearby.

    Special Programming

    Get to the park early on Saturday, October 20 at 9:00 a.m. and enjoy free yoga! Throughout the weekend you can take a self-guided tour of the park.
