ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A fence will soon be installed at Riverfront park to better protect children. The county commission is selecting a company to put up a fence around the fountains at the park. 

It will help keep children from wandering into the road which is just feet away, or down to the river where two people drowned last year.

"You want to be as safe as possible and this is the best way that we could do that and at the same time utilize the taxpayers money in the best, most efficient manner to protect people," said Dougherty County Chairman Jeff Sinyard.

The lowest bidder estimates it will cost $27,000 to install the fence.
