Situated in Georgia’s beautiful Plantation Trace region, Albany is the hub of Southwest Georgia for healthcare, retail, cultural activities, manufacturing and higher education.
The primary trade center for the region, Albany is defined by the free-flowing rapids of the Flint River, named such by Creek Indians for its rich mineral flint or quartz naturally found there and used to make weapons and tools. The centerpiece of redevelopment in downtown Albany, the river serves as a natural backdrop to the Flint RiverQuarium, a 175,000-gallon, 22-foot deep Blue Hole aquarium that opened in 2004 highlighting the journey of the river and the natural ecosystems of the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint River basins.
Albany boasts several quality-of-life amenities within walking distance of the aquarium, including Riverfront Park, Turtle Grove Play Park, the Thronateeska Heritage Center, Wetherbee Planetarium and the Albany Civil Rights Institute. Families and visitors with a passion for wildlife can visit the only AZA-accredited zoo outside of Atlanta – Chehaw Animal Park, featuring Creekside Education Center, Children’s Play Park and a nationally sanctioned BMX bike track. Albany also has the region’s only permanent installation of traditional African art as well as exhibitions of American Impressionism at the Albany Museum of Art.
