Long Description:
Golden Park is a 5,000-seat baseball-only stadium in Columbus, Georgia that opened in 1926. Located on the Chattahoochee River in Downtown Columbus, it currently is not home to any professional baseball team. The exterior of the Golden Park is a red brick façade and has many well-landscaped sidewalks that connect to the Chattahoochee RiverWalk.

Golden Park is named after Theodore Earnest Golden, co-founder of Goldens' Foundry and Machine Co.. Golden led the effort in Columbus for the city's first South Atlantic League team. Golden Park was renovated in 1994 in anticipation of the softball events of the 1996 Summer Olympics that were held in the city of Columbus.

Currently Golden Park is home to the Columbus Wood Bats, a wood-bat collegiate summer baseball team and member of the Great South League.
