At the time of its construction in 1974, which was inspired by the Munich Olympics, the Velodrome was one of only two tracks of its kind in the United States. It served as a training facility for cyclists at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Currently, the track is the second steepest concrete race track in the country and hosts women's training sessions every Tuesday from 5-8:30 p.m.
Owned and operated by Fulton County, the amphitheater sits on a 435-acre-wooded site that seats 5,300 guests with reserved, table, and lawn seating. Peak performance season runs from Memorial through Labor Day weekends.
