Albany - - It's considered one of the seven natural wonders of Georgia and Radium Springs is about to get a makeover.

After damage from the floods of 1994 and 1998, the park closed down. Only a portion of Radium Springs is now open to the public.

Monday, county commissioners approved a $72,500 contract for a design company to come up with the first phase of a revitalization project. 

"That includes mostly a botanical garden and that opens it back up to the public for the first time in many years. So were looking forward to that and hopefully this time next year, phase one will be open," says County Administrator Richard Crowdis.

The project has already received 2.5 million dollars in SPLOST revenue. County leaders are working with state leaders and the Department of Natural resources to come up with other ideas for Radium springs -including walking trails, fishing piers, and water bird displays.
