ALBANY, GA (WALB) - While most government departments are tightening purse strings, one Albany department is expanding services.

Dougherty County Parks and Recreation is adding programs right now because of an increase in demand.

A new tot exercise class and breast cancer awareness and drug-free programs have been added. They're all free and attracting a lot of participants.

"We are adding because we know that people are not going outside of town and we want them to utilize and come take part in what we offer here in the city," said Director Suzanne Davis. 

 Next week is take your child outside week. Davis hopes to see more people in city parks.
