Columbus, Georgia is an authentic Rivertown. The gently rolling waters of the Chattahoochee have provided food, energy, employment, and recreation for the citizens of Columbus throughout the years. Today, the river is home to the 15-mile trail known as the Chattahoochee RiverWalk. The RiverWalk provides an excellent facility to bike, in-line skate, jog, or just take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the scenery.

Renovated in the 1970’s, the historic Columbus Iron Works, now The Columbus Georgia Convention and Trade Center, was once a munitions factory during the Civil War and still displays its early wares including items from Civil War cannons to iceboxes, produced in the early 1800’s. Today, the facility is recognized as one of the nation’s finest examples of “adaptive reuse” offering 182,000 square feet of space, including three exhibit halls and 27 meeting rooms, a dining gallery, and a 22,000 square foot ballroom.

The South Commons Complex is the finest collection of sports facilities you will find at one location. The centerpiece of the complex is the Columbus Civic Center. Opened in 1996, this 10,000 seat venue is a true multi-purpose facility. A brand new addition to South Commons is a 2,500 seat softball stadium. The stadium is surrounded by a seven field softball complex and provides Columbus with the opportunity to host any size softball event. Memorial Stadium is a 17,000 seat football stadium that has been recently refurbished. The stadium hosts college football powers Albany State and Ft. Valley State, and the Tuskegee-Morehouse Football Classic. Historic Golden Park is a 4,500 seat baseball stadium that is home to the Columbus Catfish Professional Baseball Team. The stadium was completely refurbished in 1996 and was the Olympic venue for the Women’s Fastpitch Softball competition.
