A consortium of public-private partners unveiled “Synovus Park” on June 11 at a public groundbreaking ceremony celebrating Minor League Baseball’s return to Columbus as part of a planned urban renaissance and ongoing downtown revitalization project surrounding the future home of the Atlanta Braves’ Double-A affiliate.

Renovation of the existing ballpark, owned by the City of Columbus and leased by DBH, is being led by W.C. Bradley Real Estate and general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie, with a completion date in time for the start of the 2025 season. The project ensures the history of the park is preserved while weaving in the best in modern technology and amenities to deliver a premier experience on the Chattahoochee River. The upgrades will allow the venue to operate year-round for public and private events with the expansion of seating to 5,000 – 7,000 as well as the addition of new suites, a club level, hospitality amenities and upgrades to player facilities. In addition to serving as the home field for the club, the stadium will host a variety of marquee events, making it a hub of activity and excitement for residents of Columbus and beyond.
