Golden Park

From BR Bullpen

Historic Golden Park in Columbus, Georgia is a classic minor league baseball park. Home to many Southern League and South Atlantic League teams over the years, it was built in 1926 and is still hosting pro baseball over 80 years later. After extensive renovations in 1996 (when the park played host to softball in the 1996 Olympics), the park still has its covered grandstand, though much of the covered seating is taken up by the newly constructed luxury boxes. The box and reserved seating are individual folding chairs, while the general admission seating is metal benches. A large concourse featuring concession stands and a small gift store is located underneath the seating areas. Concessions are limited in variety but prices are reasonable. The exterior of the ballpark has a red brick facade and the numerous sidewalks are well landscaped. Owned by the City of Columbus, the park seats 5,000. Park dimensions are: left field - 330 feet; center field - 415 feet; right field - 330 feet.
