Central City Park
Photo: Historic Luther Williams Field. See the full photo galleries below!
Home to Macon’s historic Luther Williams Field, the heart of Cherry Blossom Festival events, and the original home of the Georgia State Fair, Central City Park was Macon’s first public park. Still Macon’s largest park, stretching along the levee at the southernmost end of Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, the level terrain makes Central City Park ideal for hosting tournaments, festivals and special events. The beautiful natural setting features playground areas for children, picnic areas large enough to accommodate group outings, and a gazebo for perfect “photo ops.”
During Cherry Blossom and fair days, the park comes alive with Frisbee dog contests, pink pancake breakfasts, live concerts, amusement rides, and fair food. From baseball games to church picnics to larger festivals, Central City Park is home to many iconic moments.
Historic Luther Williams Field has also served as a film location for "Trouble With The Curve" starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams.
