BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -  Teens in Bainbridge who complain there's nothing for them to do will be happy with what the city's planning for them.  

The old tennis courts at Cheney Griffin park clearly prohibit skating right now . But the city is making plans to build a $300,000 skate park at the site.  It's part of the waterfront connectivity project the city is working on to capitalize on their location along the Flint River.

Al Kelly, Director of Leisure Services for the city of Bainbridge says, "Its going to be a positive thing. We're going to monitor it, make sure the environment's safe. In our public hearings we're getting their input from the beginning so hopefully they will have some, they'll feel like they have some ownership and they will."

The park will be around 15,000 square feet.  A second public hearing will be held Wednesday night at the Community Center in Bainbridge at 7.
