Columbus Parks & Recreation Department partners with community organizations to bring the Passport to Columbus this summer for Muscogee County youth. Passport to Columbus passes are available for children 18 years of age or younger who reside within Muscogee County.
To get a pass a parent/guardian must pick-up the pass and each child must be present at that time to be eligible for a pass. Proof of residency is required and can be shown in the form of a valid state id. The children of military personnel are also eligible to receive a pass with parent/guardian military id.
