Four O'Clock Factoid: Olympiapark

Four O'Clock Factoid is a daily feature on Track Twenty-Nine helping to get you through the workday with a bit of useless knowledge.

Munich's Olympiapark is a lasting reminder of the 1972 Olympic Games. The area converted a former airfield into a vast district home to a variety of venues, a village, and parkland. Today, the site is still a major recreational and cultural center. It is in stark contrast to some cities, like Atlanta, where little is left in the urban form as a legacy from the games.
