Stadium Remains - Part Five - Fulton County Stadium

Fulton County Stadium was the home of the Atlanta Braves from 1966-1996. It was a basic no-frills multipurpose stadium which also served as the home of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. As you can see from the Google Map above, Fulton was located just to the north of the site of Turner Field (the Braves current home).

Though Fulton County Stadium was demolished in mid-1997, the park was actually still standing the first time I went to Atlanta in June 1997.

By the time I made my second visit, for the 2000 All Star Game, Fulton County Stadium was gone and the Braves had put together a nice monument to the old park. The outline of the infield and outfield was placed in the parking lot. Also, the spot where Hank Aaron's record setting 715th was marked with a replica fence and sign. As it is a short walking distance from the new ballpark, it is very easy to see this historic site.
