History

The community that would become College Park was founded as Atlantic City in 1890 as a depot on the Atlanta and West Point Railroad. The town was renamed Manchester when it was incorporated as a city in 1891. It was renamed again as the city of College Park in 1896.

The city center is part of the College Park Historic District. The city's name came from being the home of Cox College (where the city hall and other buildings now stand) and Georgia Military Academy (now the Woodward Academy). The east-west avenues in College Park are named for Ivy League colleges, and the north-south streets are named for influential College Park residents.

The College Park Woman's Club, one of the oldest in Georgia, is located in Camellia Hall on Main Street.

Recreation

College Park has three city recreation centers — the Wayman & Bessie Brady Recreation Center, the Hugh C. Conley Recreation Center, and the Godby Road Recreation Center. The former two were opened in 1956 and named in honor of prominent city residents, Wayman and Bessie Brady, and Hugh C. Conley. They were initially segregated; white people used the Conley Center, while black people used the Brady Center. Both were equipped with basketball gymnasiums. After desegregation took place, Conley was used for gymnastics and Brady was used for basketball.

The city has four parks: Barrett Park, which is located along Rugby Avenue; Brenningham Park, which surrounds the Brady Center; Jamestown Park; and Richard D. Zupp Park, which was named in honor of a well-respected College Park resident.

College Park is home to the College Park Municipal Golf Course, which was established in 1929. It is a nine-hole course built on very hilly terrain.
