THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  A major improvement to one of Thomasville's parks will make more efficient use of the city's SPLOST revenue. 

Thomasville Public Works just completed installing eight new light poles that will provide a safer area for visitors to Remington Park.  

The improvements replaced rotten wooden poles with sturdier metal poles.

 And now, a remote access program allows for the lights to be managed to make sure energy isn't wasted. 

Assistant Public Works Superintendent Stephen Stewart said, “You need to go through the YMCA and schedule your times that you want to use the fields so we can schedule a time for them to go on and off as needed, so we aren't just wasting the lights. “

The new lights will now cover the three baseball and three soccer fields at the park.
