BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –Eight new ball fields at Bainbridge's Bill Reynolds Sports Park are nearing completion.

The new additions to the sports park, which are being paid with sales tax money, also include two multi-purpose fields, five basketball courts, and buildings for storage, bathrooms, and shelter.

Once finished, the park plans to host weekend tournaments to bring in visitors and revenue for the city.

"It just shows that Bainbridge is growing and hopefully when everything's all said and done we'll have all of our recreation down at the river," says Diane Atkinson, the Bainbridge Leisure Services Program Director.

"You can come enjoy the river then come to our parks, have a ball, then go swimming or whatever."

The city hopes to be done with the fields by the end of January and has already booked a softball tournament for next February.
