Now that the groundbreaking ceremony to renovate 98-year-old Golden Park — renamed Synovus Park — was conducted Tuesday in Columbus, it’s time to update this project.

The publicly-funded $50 million renovation is expected to transform the city’s historic baseball stadium into a state-of-the-art minor league facility. It will be the new home for the Atlanta Braves Class AA affiliate, starting in 2025, after it moves from Pearl, Mississippi.

Populous, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, is the project’s architect, and Brasfield & Gorrie, headquartered in Birmingham with an office in Columbus, is the construction contractor.
